Question

Typing in URL bar causes Firefox to hang

Firefox has begun hanging whenever I type into the URL bar. Firefox will start normally, but this problem will invariably occur soon after it has finished loading. It appears that I am able to stop Firefox from hanging if I resize the browser window.

However, the only way that I have been able to work out how to prevent the problem is by using Firefox in Safe Mode. I have tried disabling various add-ons, resetting Firefox, reverting to a previous version, and even restoring my computer to an earlier restore point, and the problem persists.

Internet Explorer functions without any errors on the same computer. Is there anything I can do except hope that a new version of Firefox does not have the same problem?

Thanks,

Gregortz
