iGoogle will not load completely
Since installing Firefox 5.0, iGoogle will not finish loading (or takes more than 5 minutes). IE8 loads iGoogle normally. Firefox 5.0 load Google immediately.
While waiting for iGoogle to finish load there is a status box that says "Read www-opensocial.googleusercontent.com". If you open another tab and go to that URL it says "Error 404 not Found".
Problem has been reported to Google Help forum (http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Web+Search/thread?tid=0cef36810af2587e&hl=en)
Erasing all cookies and history does not resolve the problem.
Re-installing Firefox 5.0 does not resolve the problem.

This problem is intermittent, but occurs frequently.
Re-installed FF5 after manually deleteing all caches and cookies. Short term fix (Problem returned next FF5 session).
Reset iGoolge. Short term fix (Problem returned next FF5 session).
Problem does NOT occur when I go to www.google.com or logout of iGoogle and the go to www.google.com/ig.
Problem does not occur on IE8.
Add-ons include Adblock Plus, Microsoft .NET framework and AVG Safe Search (disabled)
Sometimes I get "Waiting for www.google.com..."
The problem turned out to be a bad interaction between the iGoogle Finance gadget and the AVG LinkScanner.
The solution was to turn off LinkScanner.
