Since I don't use Firefox I won't be much help from here on out, although if you learn how to post screenshots ( The tutorials I linked ) it will definately help others help you.

Here's a list of basic troubleshooting tips for you to look at,

This indicates that the problem is most likely an external plugin such as a flash, java, pdf plugins, AV plugins are conflicting with FF

I was having all sorts of trouble with firefox, and switched to google chrome, but got tired of the tabs at the very top of chrome interfering with the toolbar across the top of Windows 7 and went back to firefox... but the constant not responding, lockups, hesitations from firefox was irritating... so I found this thread... and firefox was about to crash on this very thread topic, then I finally got a message from firefox an error dialog box, saying that it might be the Bing toolbar. I disabled it and have had no problems for the past couple of hours with firefox. Imagine that if it is the case... MS's BING toolbar crashing my firefox... give it a try if you use the BING toolbar. It might alleviate some problems for you.
