Firefox Consistently Hangs When Loading Certain Websites [Fixed]

So I updated ESET Nod32 (my antivirus app) from 4.0 to 5.0. That's the only major change I can think of. Now every time I try to load up Gmail or Facebook, Firefox hangs for a long time. Gmail eventually gives me an error message that goes, "Some features failed to load because of an unstable or flaky internet connection." I don't see any options in Nod32 that I might be able to disable to fix this, and temporarily disabling protection doesn't work either.

EDIT: It was an issue with my Flash player plugin.

    I can't really guarantee that we're experiencing the same issue, but for it's worth I've noticed Firefox being a complete piece of crap as of an update or two ago, having severe hang ups and slowness on the same sites on different computers and different Internet connections, to the point where I've recently switched to Chrome after *years* of using Firefox only.

    I suspect Mozilla mucked something up on their end, but I don't want to discourage you from looking into possible virus issues, either.
