Things I've Tried
-checked for any unknown or new processes
I have also run firefox in safe mode. When I select that option choose to start a new session, then disable add-ons reset toolbars etc... checking all the safe-mode options then make changes and restart, the browser will actually boot. The problem, however is that when it does so it takes 30% of my processor time the entire duration that I leave it open and it runs sluggishly at best. (e.g. I type "hello my name is blank" and only 3 of the letters even register as having been pressed, it also takes about 15 seconds to resize the window, maximize minimize etc.) Even more strange, is that mouse related activities within the browser window are not delayed at all; clicking on the google search button works just fine. I can even highlight and select menus with no delay; but when it comes to clicking on a menu, the physical menu appears, but it is never populated with text.
Also worth noting that Firefox is the only application Ive been noticing problems with.
Anyways that's my problem, Ive search your forums a bit and Ive found several firefox opening related issues, but I havent seen anything quite like this so I felt it was worth a new post.
Im happy to post a hijackthis log if needed.
