I've noticed lately I'm having more problems with Firefox. Some pages I try to view, like our local newspaper, just hang when I use Firefox. It doesn't happen with IE. It seems to involve loading some kind of graphic. The blue dots in the upper right corner just keep spinning and in the gray bar at the bottom of the browser page it says "Transferring data from catalog.video.syndication.msn.com", but it never finishes to say "Done." My system is using Windows 98se as an OS with an 800 MHz Pentium III processor with 256 MB RAM. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Sometimes mine does that if there is a element on that page like Javascript or Flash that I don't have the right (or up to date) plug-in for.
