I cannot close tabs. They open and function properly, except when it comes to closing the tab. This is regardless of whether I use the "x" to try to close out or the keyboard shortcut. It is happening both at home (Mac Snow Leopard) and work (Windows - not sure what year). I'm on the latest version of Firefox (3.6.8) for both.

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?
