Hi Experts,

I am using Firefox 18.0.1 and when I navigate to a webpage the navigation circle continues to rotate even after then page as loaded. And many websites do not load at all or after many retries, Hotmail is an example. After multiple retries it will load but even when it has loaded the circle continues to rotate and many of the links on the page do not navigate so I can not open my mail. Many other websites do this also they appear to load but the wait circle continues to rotate and many of the links on the page will not work. I have removed and re-installed and IE8 and Chrome are OK. I have disabled my Avast anti virus to see if this makes a difference and it does not.

try starting Firefox in safe mode

At the top of the Firefox window, click the Firefox button, go over to the Help menu and select Restart with Add-ons Disabled....

This worked. Have found the offending add-on and removed it. Thanks.
