Hi Alain,

Even I had the problem of Firefox freezing every 5 - 10 seconds. In my 
case the extension that was causing the problem was "Show IP". I removed 
that and then there were no problems. So you could try as Thilo has 
mentioned. Alternately you can try uninstalling the extensions one by 
one and finding the culprit extension causing the problem.
