I was actually wondering if some program was in conflict with FF.. Maybe it's a registry problem.. do you use CCleaner? If not try to download it and run it to "find problems". Choose to backup the files and to fix them afterwards.

Apart from the possibility of a virus or other malware attack, do not dismiss the probability of system instability. Which Firefox version are you using? In my experience it was, I do not know about now, not advisable to open more than two Firefox windows with many open tabs. It had something to do with the way Firefox handled memory usage. It was for this reason that I am not using Firefox the way I used to.

yeah well downloading normal stuff doesnt really causes the problems it mostly due to many unidentified authors add-ons and all. Just take a print screen of your plug-ins installed on firefox and put a link here.
