I`ve tried everything from reinstalling, changing the version of FireFox and going to safe mode but it still freezes and hangs for me.
Sometimes it hangs for a few seconds and others for a few minutes, it happens constantly.

Any help would be most welcome because i don`t really want to change browsers.

I`ve done all the malware checks with MalwareBytes, SuperAntispyware and Bitdefender 2011 and it found nothing.

Try disabling all addons and toolbars, and make sure your plugins are up to date - Firefox Plugin Check

Test with another browser (IE8 or Chrome) to see if you get the same problem. It could be your network rather than Firefox.

Are you connected directly to the router/modem or wirelessly?

Any other computers on your network?

Is anyone on your network hogging the bandwidth? (eg. file-sharing or streaming videos)

Check Event Viewer and Task Manager to see which other processes are running when you get the freezes.

If it doesn't happen on your other browsers, download Firefox 7 beta 5 and see how it does.
