Why does Firefox like to freeze on me?

I have been having an issue with Firefox freezing "sporadically" on my PC. In a nutshell, Firefox freezes typically once per boot-up cycle. By freeze, I mean that my whole PC locks up and is unusable, no clicking is allowed for any task, but my mouse is free to scroll around. Once the computer unfreezes, typically under 1 minute later, whatever action I had taken will pop up (including but not limited to ctrl-alt-del). This freezing only occurs on certain websites, and only after boot-up. The frequent problem I have isolated is yahoo mail, where the browser becomes stuck on "read s.yimg.com".

As far as I know, this only occurs shortly after boot up. If I magically avoid culprit sites, the PC eventually reaches a state where I have yet to witness a freeze. So say I get lucky on a few websites and edit a word doc for an hour, when I eventually load yahoo mail, it may NOT freeze.

I am currently running Firefox version 43.01. I had been using 36.04 until I updated to 43.0, and the problem started occurring on 36.04. I ran Firefox via safe mode, and also manually disabled all add-ons, but the problem persisted.

Also gave google chrome a shot, and I did not come across this same issue.

Anybody see this before? Curious for any insight you are able to provide, and a possible solution. While it may seem like a stupid question (do stupid questions actually exist?), could this be a virus? My gut tells me no, but I am no computer specialist.

Thanks!

I am told that they are encrypted and use mixed content. Firefox automatically blocks them. But, I need to download and use their scans and fix it tools. How can I fix this for these websites to work? I have already allowed them in permissions. It hasn't helped. My firewalls are not blocking them. Browser is updated. Firefox 43.0 Windows 7

Windows Xp 32 bit, Avast security. Ever since your last (2) updates my page will crash anywhere, e mail, Facebook, etc. Most importantly, I constantly have my entire page disappear & the Error Plug In container .exe crashed. Before those (2) updates I NEVER had either problem. I have used Safe mode. Uninstalled, reinstalled Flash. reset Firefox, Uninstalled & reinstalled Firefox. Do you have any more suggestions? I would like to go back before those (2) updates. I don't remember what "Number" that was. Is that possible? This is driving me crazy!!!!!

Kaspersky cannot function because Firefox is making it impossible. I can't get a "certificate" from Kaspersky to satisfy Firefox. Kaspersky will not accept my appeals because I no longer use the email address I used when I started with Kaspersky 7 years ago. I see MANY OTHERS HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM, BUT YOU DO NOT REVEAL THE SOLUTION. FIX THIS. mY COMPUTER IS IN REPAIR BECAUSE OF THIS CONFUSION.
