Almost have the pages on BGG has this bug. I am currently using Firefox 4.0.1.

WHen a page is loaded, the "loading" animation icons still continues to rotate indefinitely. I need to push ESC to make it stop. There is probably something on the page that does not get loaded, but I don't know what because everything seems to be there.

It seems that any kind of page does this. Even the page I am currently typing into.

When I've had that, I found it was due to a particular ad.

Last time I was on FF4 on linux.

Now I am on firefox 3.5 on windows and I don't have this problem.

Maybe I should upgrade and see.

I've been seeing it as well. Firefox 6.01 - Window 7 Home Premium (64 bit)

I don't think that it has impacted me functionally, just distracting.

I've seen this before caused by certain ads, notably the little square ad that shows up on the game pages. Do you have ads enabled?

Yes the adds are enabled, but it's not really a choice

Now two ads in particular are slowing page load and response time horrifically. Both are side vertical banners: Elder Sign and World of Tanks.
