I have a new HP Intel Core2duo computer that has 4 gigs of ram with Windows 7 64bit and the video card reads Quatro 1500FX. While typing anywhere on the net (search bars, forms, logins, emails...etc) it will hang for a minute or two and then slowly add each letter that was typed. This causes the screen to freeze until it's done. It's incredibly annoying. It looks like it only happens in Firefox, I've reset Firefox but it hasn't helped. I tested in IE and it seems fine. I prefer using Firefox though. No malware or viruses found either as my computer is still new. Doesn't happen offline at all, I usually have to write in notepad first and copy & paste into whatever I'm doing online to avoid the problem. This happened on my other computer too, exact same machine except that one has 7 gigs of ram but when I deleted an add-on and reinstalled it, it seemed to do the trick. Things I've already tried for this computer are...
-Complete system scan for adware and malware -Resetting Firefox -Uninstalling Firefox and re-installing -Clearing cache and cookies -Un-checking "use hardware acceleration" in the options menu -Disabling all add-ons and plugins
I know it's a Firefox issue because every other browser works just fine. I've posed on numerous forums and no one knows what to do about it. Any help/suggestions would be highly appreciated, thanks.
