Firefox (Version 15) Running Slow

Ok so recently my Firefox would be running slow. What is happening when I go and open a new tab, and go to a site, it will keep loading and loading. It will stop loading and finally load the page if I hit the refresh button. So pretty much I need to get a site to load by refreshing. Some sites don't do this, but a great deal of them do. It's quite annoying and has been happening for awhile now. Does anyone have any ideas on why? Maybe a conflicting add-on? All of which are up to date, as well as the extensions.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Yeah it loads fine in Safe mode. With all add ons disabled. So I guess it's one of my add ons? But I haven't installed any new Add ons and this just recently started to happen...

Possible that one of the add-ons works not properly since last update. Deactivate all add-ons an try find out step by step which one causes the problem.
