What addons do you have installed in Firefox ?
Some poorly written addons can freeze everything.

and also, do you have Tortoise SVN installed?

Hey Harvey,
It is a legitimate copy of win 7. I really rely on a functioning computers. Check my spec's albeit not great but even according to WEI (asus mobo pro, amd cpu 250, 4gb ddr3 ram) it's fine, . I originally built it for HTPC but my business required it as a work horse so kinda got snatched. So I am trying to get it working alongside my XP (which is fine) intel e8400, asus pro mobo, 4 gb of ddr2 ram, nvidia 9500 (again not great but does the job)

Lets see...
I'm running the latest version of Firefox with addons that add Glass and Firefox 4.0 UI elements to 3.6. I also have the latest version of Flash. While I am running Firefox with several tabs open, I have Visual Studio 2010 with a small project open and a few files in use. At the same time I have Zune playing my music collection from my external HDD which requires extra CPU cycles. Added to that I have a 1080 HD video playing on Youtube. All of those is on a 1920x1200 screen that near maxes out the capabilities of my Graphics card.

And you know what? No issues, all run without lag or hiccups. To make it worse, my computer sucks compared to yours.
Your problems lead me to believe there is an underlying problem with either the programs you installed or hardware.

yes i am talking about firefox. I thought the changeover to IE would have probably made it fairly obvious.

It's my understanding that forced restarts could corrupt the OS and cause many other problems. As others have suggested, a reinstall might be your best bet. But you may be able to save yourself some time by trying to run System File Checker. Start > run > type in sfc / scannow > OK (there's a space between sfc and /scannow.) If damaged/missing files are detected you'll be prompted to insert your install disk so fresh copies can be extracted.

I've also heard that the latest Adobe Flash hotfix might have some install issues unless all active browser windows are closed prior to attempting the installation.

Possibly Firefox? Do you have any Addons/extensions? If so remove them one by one to see if you can find the one causing the issue. If not uninstall and reinstall firefox.

BTW. I was simply pointing out that you were confusing the issue when you just say "Mozilla" rather than Firefox. Its helpful in these matters to be as clear as possible. Really don't appreciate your tone.
