Windows 7: FireFox Hangs

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
 
 
FireFox Hangs

Hi,
I am using a Lenovo laptop with i5 processor, upgraded its OS from Windows 7 Home Basic to Home Premium. I also have Norton360 and TuneUp Utilities (latest versions, 2012).
Firefox 11 was running OK, but because I had many add-ons, I decided to uninstall it and get myself a fresh browser. So, I did that with Revo Uninstaller Pro.
After the re-installation, every time I run Firefox the address bar doesn't take any input from the keyboard. The program itself accepts the mouse clicks on menus for a short time, before it freezes completely!
After I press Ctrl+W, it adds +1 to the number of opened tabs. Firefox opens 2 tabs on start up, one for the homepage and the other on Mozilla site. But it asks me "do you want to all the 3 opened tabs?". It does the same when there is only one tab opened.

The same exact problem itself!!!

* I have tried to make another profile but it didn't work. I also started Firefox in safe mode but it froze after few seconds. Installed it on drive D, didn't help either.

That's why I used TuneUp Utilities but it didn't fix it. Do you have any suggestions?

As sure as Norton360 says. It didn't report anything.

Ok, it seems that after every new installation Firefox adds a new virtual tab to the actual ones it opens. I have just re-installed it, when I tried to close it after the first run, it said that there are 5 tabs opened, in its warning message! If you can help with this it will be great, if can't, how can I report this problem to Firefox.
