Javascript causing FF to hang

About 2 weeks ago my FF upgraded to 3.6.8. At the same time FF started hanging after only a few hours. To be more precise, at 15 minutes scrolling would become choppy. by a couple hours everything was slow and choppy. and by 6-9 hours FF would be near locked up. my memory usage increases a little, but nothing drastic. and never goes higher than about 350k, well below the 8gb of ram on my system.

At the bottom of this post is a list of everything i tried. but my final test was to turn everything on. all add-ons, extension, 23+ tabs, 3 windows, ect. But i turned off one thing in FF options, javascript. 12 hours later, everything was still silky smooth.

But how do i fix a javascript problem? I've tried uninstalling the browser / reinstalling. clearing cache / history. tried older version. tried 4.0 beta. tried a new profile. tried deleting all profiles. tried as few as 5 tabs with very little javascript on them. i even tried a hard refresh (cntrl+F5) of all open tabs, none worked.

there's only 2 times i can clear the problem. 1) turn off javascript. 2) use only sites with no javascript. i tried one test with 23 open tabs, all to a msg board made out of php, and no hanging.

i have a quad core 2.83ghz, 8gb ram, windows 7 ultimate 64 system.

complete list of what i've tried: tried running fewer tabs tried disabling addons tried disabling extensions tried running in safe mode tried clearing cache and history tried creating new profile tried running in vista sp2 compatability mode tried turning off proxy tried FF 4 tried FF 3.6.3 (pre plugin container) tried FF 3.5.11 tried java update 19 (current is 21) tried complete uninstall (not just through uninstaller, but extended directions) tried disabling the plugin container tried scanning for malware / viruses, none found tried a chkdsk on the hard drive made sure all extensions were up to date (flash / java / quicktime / ect)

I'm now out of ideas on how to fix this asside from a complete reinstall of windows. which i'd rather not do since i dont even know if that will solve the problem. i see alot of win7 64bit users on here with hanging problems.

likewise, please avoid comments like "use chrome". i'm using chrome. i'm using it to post this support question. i'll tell you, i dont like it. it gets the job done, but is severely lacking in several major features. among them a competative add-on catalog, and the ability to temp download files for viewing. every single thing being downloaded to my hard drive for good is annoying. constantly clearing out the download directory is annoying.

Before the most recent upgrade to Firefox 3.6.8 two weeks ago, everything worked fine with this program. My issue is, I can not copy and paste a URL address from You Tube and download it into a program called Audio Editor. After the upgrade, when I copy and paste the URL address and start to download, there is no download. The message No File Downloaded, please try again. It is like there is nothing there. It worked great for a couple of months. Is there a setting in the new version of Firefox that prevents me from copying, pasting and downloading from You Tube?

As the title says, Firefox crashes exactly once per day. I always find it when I come home from work, which can be anywhere from 8 to 10 PM. It is every single day, not just occasional. More specifically, the Firefox window is missing and all that remains is the generic "Visual C++ Runtime Library" crash box.

My system is a fairly new machine. I just built it earlier this year.

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 black edition (quad core overclocked from 3.2 to 4.1 GHz) Motherboard: Asus M4A785-M RAM: 3 GB DDR2 Video: Zotac GeForce 9800 GT OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (dual boot with Debian Lenny, but the crash is just in Windows)

I know the first thing that stands out there is that overclock, but it's unrelated. I suspected it causing an issue at first, so I ran it at stock specs for 3 days. It still crashed Firefox daily. I believe the system itself is quite stable, I never have problems with other software. My FF version is up to date, although it's been doing this for the past 3 or 4 releases. The only add-ons I have installed are DownloadHelper and Flash Player, but it still crashes if I disable them.

This one's got me kind of stumped. Does anybody have any clue what could be triggering this? It doesn't matter what tabs I have open either, in case anybody was wondering. One day, just to test that I closed Firefox before I left in the morning, then opened it back up with only one tab: google.com ....... still crashed by the time I got back home.

(note: I have hundreds of bookmarks) I search the word "idea" in the location bark (with prefs set as searching for Bookmarks) and only SOME of the bookmarks with "idea" in the name come up. I type "ideas" and they all disappear, even though there IS one with the word "ideas". This happens even in Safe Mode.
