Firefox 37.0.2 sometimes freezes on a Windows XP Professional machine when I attempt to access my extensive Bookmarks Library. This is a new issue. I tried refreshing Firefox, but that did not help.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Problem solved.

Clicking on one particular Bookmarks folder caused Firefox to freeze. However, I was able to expand this folder and move, consolidate, or delete the many sub-folders. During this process, I discovered that one sub-folder was a copy of the All Bookmarks folder. This may have generated a type of infinite loop that caused the freeze-up, or the content of the offending folder may have been excessive.
