Using Win XP Home, everything on PC is in great working order.

Chosen solution

Click on one or more of Extensions, Plugins, or Appearance in the left column of the Add-on Manager display. Doing that one time only corrected the problem for me. It has not occurred again even after exiting and restarting Firefox. The cause is not known at this time. Only a couple of posts have been seen here on this issue.

Quickly select Extensions or Plugins when you open the Add-ons Manager. The Get Addons item is trying to load data from the Add-ons website which is very busy with add-on updates related to the Firefox 6.0 update. In a few days when things quiet down, it shouldn't be a problem.

IMO, that Get Add-ons display is silly. Maybe I'm just old fashioned, but when I want to look at add-ons I just go to the add-ons website. I don't need that garbage slowing down Firefox everytime I want to look at the add-ons I already have installed.
