While writing an email in Gmail after I type a few letters the busy circle appears and the screen freezes. Then after a few seconds what I typed appears on the screen. Sometimes the whole screen fades to light colors while it is frozen. It is almost impossible to use Gmail since it freezes after I type only a few letters.

If I use Internet Explorer instead of Mozilla, Gmail works normally. There seems to be a conflict with Mozilla.
