For me firefox frequently "greys out" and I cannot use it for a few 
seconds until it becomes resposive again. It is very frustrating. I have 
the problem on both my laptop and desktop. On my laptop I started with a 
fresh install of Hardy beta and on my desktop I upgraded from Gutsy to 
Hardy beta.
