Firefox hangs randomly

I've been having this problem for a couple weeks now. Firefox will hang randomly. I've disabled all my addons to narrow it down and even upgraded to FF 5.0.1 but I still have this issue.

Firefox hangs while browsing the internet. Sometimes, it happens when I click a bookmark in the toolbar, sometimes it happens when I click a link, and even when I'm just scrolling down a page. It does it on sites with flash and without flash, it doesn't seem to discriminate.

Anyway, I love firefox but this is just a killer. It's incredibly frustrating to be in a hurry and have to wait 30 seconds for the it to unfreeze. And..it just did it again as I was typing.

Help me!

Never did find the cause; switched to Chrome and been happy ever since. Hangs can be caused by any number of things though so it's pretty broad question.
