I usually have 2 tabs pinned. Sometimes when another tab opens or switches to another page it will lock. The status is always waiting on something which is always different. The sites are always different. It happens a very small percentage of the time. I can not switch to another tab. There is no wait icon. The easiest way out is to right click on the program tab at the bottom of the page and select "close window". This has happened in the previous and current version of Windows. I have not seen the same problem in another program. Most times a program restart will solve the problem and at other times the same problem will recur.

Although intermittent, does the problem occur if you run the browser in Mozilla Safe mode for a time? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_mode


I have not tried but there are add-ons that I absolutely need.

And one or more of those extensions may be involved in the problem.
