i recently changed os to vista ultimate 32bit. i did my usual software installations (anti virus, games office etc..). currently i connect to the internet via my wireless adapter. now this is whats confusing me. i know my internet connection is connected, so why smetimes when i browse with firefox it freezes during page loading. i thought it may be due to processing the data for the next page, but i once waited 10 minutes for it to load and no cigar. tried shutting the process and it wont let me, only way around it is to restart and even with that done i still experience the same problem. i know i am still conected to the net as i have steam running in the background and which i can play games online whilst firefox freezes.
i thought it may be the conflict between the vista's firewall and my zonealarm's, even if i disable ZA- same issue.. tried reinstalling firefox, happens again, i even reinstalled my wireless adapter and EVEN reboot my pc but STILL the same.. i really dont know whats going on here.. could use some help with this.

When you say "freeze" as in crash or it takes an obese amount of time to load the url but it's still (firefix) active?

I have had a similar issue on many occasions, and have found it's usually a problem with my modem. My modem isn't wireless, but it will sometimes crash whilst loading a page, even though I still have other internet related items running.
For me, the solution is to pull the power connector on the modem for 10 seconds, plug it back in, and wait for it to connect.
Sometimes, this won't work and I need to reset (reboot) my system.
You could try this, it may or may not help.

A simple test.
You should try being log onto an instant messenger or another program that will inform you when your net is inactive by logging out and then browse around.
If Firefox still "freeze" then it is most likely be course the browser crashes.
A friend of mine had problems with firefox rapidly crashing randomly and quite often.
I can recommend you trying another browser like googles chrome to check if you will still experience this problem.
If not then it is most likely course firefox needs to have a bug fix.
If this also crashes, then it is most likely either your modem or router that has some sort of problem (or the configurations on your current machine)
Best of luck to you!
