When ever I use stumble upon or open links in new tabs firefox will freeze after going opening about 5 of them. This started happening more frequently over the past few weeks so I tried google chrome and it froze too.
IE seems to work fine but I prefer to avoid it at all costs.

I'm running windows 7 64bit.

What is the processor speed and RAM of your system? And make/model of your computer?

Try un- and re-installing Firefox. Maybe something went screwy in the install process?

Tried that before but used the same installer. I'll try it again in the morning with a new installer and post if that fixes it.

So far so good with a fresh installer. Feel dumb for not trying a new installer in the first place >.<

Thanks for your help and good luck in the future.
