    Recently (last week or so) firefox keeps hanging while it is trying to fetch webpages.

    It comes and goes, one minute I am using it without a proble, having around 6/7 tabs open, each downloading fine.

    Then, firefox seems to just hang, not the application itself, I can stlill interact with it, but it timesout.

    This forces me to use IE7 (I do have Opera floating around too).. but I like my firefox.

    I recently upgraded to FF 2 a while back and there was no problems, only recently.

    When I use IE7 it does not hang on my connection at all, and my connectio is very strong.

    Any ideas?

    I have had this issue before, but it's always been a particular web site causing the problems. In other words, if I force quit and go back to the culprit site I have problems, but if I just browse in other places, there's no problem. I don't know WHY that happens, but it does. And I'm still on 1.5.

    I have an eye for detail like you'd never believe.

    Well, I do browser regular websites, but not sure which, have not noticed that it is one in particular.

    I'll keep a lookout

    Well, on Linux, Firefox 2.0 will randomly hang completely -- i.e., freeze. Doubt it's a related symptom, but damn is it annoying... Fortunately, I have Konqueror. If only it handled Gmail and Google Calendar perfectly, I wouldn't even be using Firefox anymore (except for webdev purposes -- Firebug kicks ***).

    I wondered how long it would be before I saw Firebug mentioned here.
