Firefox freezes every five minutes, "not responding" for about a full minute at a time then resumes, only to do it again five minutes later

It's just random, about every five minutes everything just freezes. It's not my computer, just the browser. I get the (not responding) in the upper left corner of the browser. I have to keep waiting about a full minute for the browser to resume. This only started happening after I downloaded Firefox 7

I had this same problem... I've un-installed(Control Panel\Programs and Features) all JAVA's(sort by name) and loaded JAVA 6.0. Firefox is back to normal again... (remember to change the settings in JAVA to not check for updates...) Hope this helps!

The default of the pref network.http.max-connections has been increased from 30 to 256 in Firefox 6+ versions.

You can try to decrease the value of the pref network.http.max-connections from 255 to a more modest setting like 30 as used in Firefox 3 versions.

Not really what I'm talking about. I load pages just fine, it's randomly as I'm viewing the already loaded pages that the browser freezes and I have to wait a full minute to resume.

Did you give it a try to be sure that that isn't at least part of the problem?

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

I tried changing the thing from 255 to 30 and it's still doing it.
