Usually when you go to the tab and where the refresh button usually is there will be an [x] hit that and it will more than likely stop the annoying spinning. Hope this helps, Jeremy Eramian

Discovered a solution, add this piece of code to userChrome.css file within a chrome directory in your firefox profile*:

/* Firefox userChrome.css */

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

.tab-throbber {

 list-style-image: url("chrome://mozapps/skin/places/defaultFavicon.png") !important;

}

/*if you have not got a chrome folder create manually both the folder and the file with exact names*/
