    Try (seriously temporarily) disabling any "browser integration" in your anti-virus and see if it makes any difference. I've seen issues in the past with AVG & Firefox in that some (past) AVG updates just killed FF until you disabled the "in browser" A/V "link scanning/checking" etc.

    Having disabled your A/V and tested, be sure to re-enable your A/V and I'd thence do a full scan just in case.
