Try Firefox safemode, see if the same thing happens. Does it do it in safemode with networking?

Did you create a new Firefox Profile and Test it ?

Start | Run | Firefox -p | then Add and create a new one then click OK then open Firefox and Test it

Tezlewis is mentioning to boot the System in Safe Mode with Networking here Advanced Boot Options
