When typing into a web page, after 2 letters my firefox freezes says 'not responding' for 20 seconds + before allowing me to continue typing? Do I have a bug?
When typing into any webpage, ie updating Facebook, my blog, logging into banking etc, and also when typing in this message now, I type two characters and then no more appear. After about 5 seconds I will get a message saying 'not responding' and about another 15 to 20 seconds later one more letter typed will appear and I can then continue typing.
I'm inevitably paranoid it's a virus and have virus checked several times.
NB it has happened twice while I've been writing this. Once after I'd typed the first 2 letters of the first sentence, and a second time in the middle of writing 'checked' in the sentence two before this one.

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information.
Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.
To Reset Firefox do the following:
Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.
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.
