My problem:  Suddenly, for no apparent reason, Mozilla Firefox gets hung and will not respond/open pages.  I am not able to click on anything as the mouse-thingie is an hourglass.

I have looked for a troubleshooting FAQ, but I haven't found anything helpful yet.  I am not sure I understand the problem and I am too scared/unskilled to do anything beyond rebooting without some confirmation that I am doing the right thing.

And all of the sudden it is working again. WTF?

Did you reboot? Sometimes that is all it takes for weird problems like that.

Then again, sometimes they break and fix themselves.....the wonderful work of computers...

I did reboot earlier and that didn't affect it at all.

It just fixed itself apparently.

IE tab extension for firefox?
on Aug 12, 2007
It may have been updating extensions or checking for updates to FF itself ...the hourglass will show & freeze FF when it does update not sure of course, but that has happened to me. I disabled auto update on every program I have because without fail the program will hang just when I am in the middle of doing something.
