I use windows XP and recently upgraded to FF 6.0 when I click the FF shortcut it attempts to load with the hourglass icon but then stops. 5-8 minuets after it loads. This is obviously frustrating. I love FF and need your help.

Here 5.0 if that is what you want.

     ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/5.0/win32/en-US/

But I don't what 5 is going to do for you if your having trouble with 6.

Did you try reading threw Troubleshoot and diagnose Firefox problems, you should try to see what your issue are rather than go backwards.
