On a Vista 32 bit and a Windows 7 64 bit computer running the latest Firefox, stats.stackexchange sometimes completely blocks the computer when loading the web-font Tex/math/italic part for the first time.

The mouse freezes as well. A little waiting and Ctrl + Alt + Del solves the problem, but it's highly annoying. I thought at first it was my computer, but I have it every time now and on two different computers.

Does anybody else have this problem?

  • when you say "latest Firefox" do you mean 4.0 beta or the released version? – Jeff Atwood Oct 3 '10 at 16:00
  • @Jeff Atwood : Firefox 3.6.10 I run. – Joris Meys Oct 3 '10 at 17:57

I can't reproduce this in Firefox 3.6.10 ..

Have you tried running Firefox in SAFE MODE, to ensure that it's not some rogue or poorly written plugin? That's usually the case with Firefox problems.
