This has long been an issue with Firefox, just search google for 
"firefox stall" and you'll find thousands who have had the same behavior 
on multiple different platforms. Hitting refresh usually gets the page 
to load, and you might try creating a new profile to see if that helps any.

In the modern age T1 is not exactly considered a high speed connection, 
it's only around 1.5 Mbit/s. A T3 is faster than most home connections, 
but not by much.
