New FireFox install- causes 'hangs'

  jack 11:16 18 Sep 2009

One of my flock having installed FireFox now finds that the computer will 'hang'from time to time.
His wife plays online scrabble and it seems hew said that the hang will occur at a ctitical moment- so that she 'loses' a particular move.
He reverted back to 'Explorer' - no hangs
His protection is AVG free
and he is unaware of sany other malaware or similar protection that may be doing periodic scans [for example]
Any suggestions please.

Hi.I am not sure it will fix the problem but worth a try.Does he have Ad-blocker plus add-on downloaded.Maybe that would help it run a bit better.3.5.3 is the latest version of Firefox.
His protection is AVG,Does he have any Anti-Spyware programs downloaded.

Ad blocker etc.,
As I intimated
He/She are users- he/she switch it on and it goes[or it don't] they don't know what programs they have got-
With folk like these it like trying to get milk from a Billy Goat- I would hasv to go look see to know.
