My wife and I are experiencing "Freezes" when using Firefox 3.0. It appears to freeze at odd times and will lock up the whole machine. Even CTL+ALT+DEL does not work either at all or for quite some time. I was also watching a programme on the "BBC iplayer downloads programme (the programme where downloaded programmes are stored for viewing later) and this kept locking up, again CTL+ALT+DEL did not behave as expected. I phoned my daughter and she is also experiencing the same problems she it using Firefox 3.0 and Windows 8.1. So that is three different machines 1 is connected to a completely different exchange. My wife and I have also noticed that if we are in Yahoo.co.uk and wishing to look at some of the news/film clips this will also lock up firefox etc., I all the cases we get a message "Firefox not responding" Has anyone any information as how to overcome this problem?
