Firefox not responding, slow, mouse dependant

Specs: Windows 7
Dear Friends

I am having annoying problems with my Firefox. It keeps freezing and not responding every 5 or 6 minutes, and when it works, and I open a page it only loads the page if I keep the mouse moving or am typing. Its very annoying :) I would appreciate some help in this matter. Details below:

System:
Satellite T130-13Q (<--- dont buy, bad driver vendor for sound drivers)
Key Features
- Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-bit
- Intel® Pentium® Processor ULV SU2700
- 3072 MB (2048+ 1024) DDR3 RAM (800MHz)

Windows 7
Firefox Version 7.0 (up to date)

Problem Occured: My firefox was always not responding about every 5 6 minutes, i ran malwarebytes, it found 3 problems, removed, restarted.

Since restart Firefox still keeps not responding about every 5 6 minutes, plus when I want to change the page it only loads the new page if I keep the mouse moving or if I am typing. This happens on all platforms, in all firefox functions and when I am downloading. Also once the page is loaded fully after circling the mouse again and again applications and icons only work when i move the mouse or type as well.

How do I fix this? What did I do wrong? What can I do?

Thanks in advance.

"dont buy, bad driver vendor for sound drivers"

Toshiba is a bad vendor? I had no problem finding the driver.

Toshiba Sound driver

Isn't Firefox 7 still a beta? Were you having problems with version 6.02?

Go back to the latest Firefox "release version".

EDIT:
Seems Firefox is updating quicker than I am LOL.

Newest full release: 7.0.1 version of Firefox as of today.

Clean out your browser if you have not recently (cookies, history, temp internet files, etc.) and see if that helps. Download latest version of Firefox, they have been having quite a few upgrades/updates lately. Try this manually from their website.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Thanks for all the help it did the job for me to go back to the original issue of Mozilla.

I am stil having problems with sound on my laptop though. It works at about 30% 40% for 2 3 minutes and the no sound at all until I restart the laptop. I didnt say there is no driver, the driver is bad. Ive downloaded that driver over 10 times and replaced with the old one. Didnt work. The problem has been discussed on other boards as well. It is mentioned that one is to use the window inbuilt driver but even this doesnt work for me. I have followed all sorts of instructions from various boards but nothing worked so far. I would not recommend anyone to buy this laptop :), sorry.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
