Firefox hangs for 10-20 seconds at a time, becomes non-responsive and I have to wait for it to "un-hang". This is on Windows 7 Ultimate x64

It seems random. I can't find a common element in the hangups. It simply stops responding. Everything else works fine, no other program suffers from these hangups. It does not crash, but it just stalls for a long time.
