This started only a few days ago (January 10th, 2013).
I have the latest Firefox and Flash. I'm running 10.6.8 on my macbook pro

 

So if I navigate to www.facebook.com, the page briefly loads, then beachballs (not responding) every time. I can navigate directly to any other facebook page -  a friend, event, etc. - and it works perfectly fine. The chat also works when I do this.

 

Isn't that weird, you guys?

 

I did this while watching the activity monitor, and the only thing that was out of the ordinary was dashboard client was quite busy. So I used terminal to kill dashboard client, but the problem remains. Other than that, the activity monitor is normal for this operation.

 

Any ideas? Or is this just a situation where you go to the doctor and say "doctor, my arm hurts when I move it like that" and the doctor says "so don't move it like that."

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
