firefox and downloads freeze unless cursor is moving
Firefox (and downloads) freeze unless cursor is moving. What is the problem, and how do I fix this?
I have experienced this in the past and I think it resolved upon reboot, but I have tried numerous times without success today. Pages even stop loading unless the cursor is moving (i.e., I move my finger around the touchpad). I am running FF5.0 on Win7 Home Premium, SP1 with 6GB RAM.

Hi cor-el. I actually found another thread here with some folks who also suggested disabling add-ons. This worked for about half a day, then the problem returned (with add-ons still disabled). I then restored to a previous state (Win7), which meant only nullifying 1 uninstall, in effect re-installing an insignificant program (a plumbing spec calculator). I scanned also and found no malicious items. It is working now and with add-ons enabled. So, I am left to consider the uninstall. I plan to uninstall this again at some point. I will post back if I have anything interesting to report.
