I am using Firefox 8.0.1 and am developing websites using Wampserver 2.0 for testing the site. When I try to load a site containing a Flash video,using localhost, Firefox hangs. On the status bar I see the following message: "Waiting for localhost..."

If I load a site that does not contain a Flash video, using localhost, Firefox works perfectly.

I have no problem using localhost with any site using IE or Chrome as my browser.
