    Hi,
    very recently my firefox browser has started to freeze while i surf, the window does not say "not responding" but when i try to click a link it does nothing. To get it to work again i have to go in task manager, after i have x-ed out of the window and close the process...
    Any help?
    Thanks,
    Jack

    Not a firefox expert, but I would suggest just installing the
    latest version of Firefox and see if that clears up your problem!

    turn the heating on, it'll thaw out :D

    Update to 1.5.0.3 you probably bumped into the memory leak bug again :)

    disable all yur extensions and then enable them one by one until it freezes, then you need to research that extension to see if there are any bugs/conflicts :)

    To help un-freeze, use this.

    Yea, I'd think that would work.
