Firefox Running fast and Hanging

  lmhillyard 20:10 25 Feb 2010

I have been using Firefox for a few years now.
In the last few months it has started running 60%+
CPU speed and hanging.
I have updated to the latest version and changed from Vista to 7 disabled java and disabled all the add ons.
Still the problem persists.
If I keep using it it will stay working for longer but if I leave it it will hang in minutes.
I have changed the screen saver to kick in at 45 minutes all to no avail.
Searched the net without a satisfactory answer
Any Ideas??
Wnidows 7
4gb Ram
1.5TB HD
