Downloaded FF Mac update this am - now the program hangs (spinning wheel of death) when I click on aol.com, and the rest of my Mac functionality is severely slowed down. So I forcequit FF, went to Google Chrome (my backup browser, Safari is my 3rd browser, thank god for multiple browsers) and everything was back to working as slick as ever. So somethin' is up with the latest FF for Mac. BTW - this same problem happened to me when I downloaded a FF update while in UK this June, I had to use Chrome until I got home, reloaded the FF update, everything OK then. After the two problems with FF Mac updates, you making me think twice about using FF as my primary browser; I'd like a response, please. So far I've no problems with Chrome (6-8 mos of intermittent usage) and am seriously considering dumping FF in favor of Chrome. BTW, the problem in June happened on my MacBook Pro, today's problem happened on my iMac, both running latest version OS 10.6.8. Is there some carelessness in releasing these updates, like not fully tested before releasing?
