Live Messenger & FireFox = SLOW FarmVille?!

One computer has NO issues however here is the problem on the second:
When I have Windows Live Messenger running and access FarmVille, I see in the debugger program "Charles" that IP addresses are being opened that have to do with Windows Messenger. FarmVille runs incredibly slowly at this point, loading images etc. takes forever. If WLM is not turned on then there is no issue, and if I do the exact same on the first PC, there is no issue and those IP addresses are not accessed by WLM. So I suppose, my question is either how do I stop WLM from causing this issue while still being able to use it and FireFox or what is causing this issue and why only on one of the two PC's both running WML, FireFox and playing FarmVille?

Firstly, restart the computer in question.
Then, try reinstalling the two conflicting programs. They're small and insubstantial anyhow.
And lastly, if the problem persists, I suggest making sure your computer is clean of malware and spyware before resorting to downloading a firewall that will let you block the IP addresses to blame. Or you can switch to Google Chrome.

If all else fails, reformat.
