Tab titles get stuck on "Connecting..."

Any time I open a new tab, their names all stay at "Connecting..." If I do the option to refresh all tabs at once, it fixes it, but then soon it goes back to the issue again. When I tried Safe Mode, however, I noticed it wasn't doing it. But I have once disabled every single add-on/extension I had, and the problem STILL persisted. Cleared cache, still nothing.

Also, before anyone says it (I've seen it in a lot of questions regarding this), I do not have, nor have I ever even used, TabRenamizer.

Also, here is a screen shot to look at as well: http://i.imgur.com/Y4Luc.png

Re: Tab titles get stuck on "Connecting..."

This issue can be caused by the FoxLingo extension

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

  • Do not click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.

Re: Tab titles get stuck on "Connecting..."

That FoxLingo actually did appear to be the issue. But I never had this issue when using it on my Windows XP Home desktop's FireFox. Is this a bug only for Windows 7?
