I have the same issue....on my FF 7.01 on MacBook Pro. Spinning wheel will not go away on one page, but before that happens pages are slow forever, like scrolling up and down is awful.

Please, tell me what to do to fix this issue, as I love FF (my fav browser for years) and I would hate to have to stop using because of how frustrating it gets with this issue.
