The latest update does seem to have caused some issues for me as well.  
Certain sites (the Autodesk EAGLE site was one of them) seem to just 
about completely hang with current Firefox for me.  Might have something 
to do with having NoScript loaded; NoScript had an update within the 
last few days that seems to have fixed the Autodesk EAGLE site issue.

The issue manifested itself with a nearly completely hung tab, and all 
other tabs hung as well, with nothing clickable.  Clicking the X to 
close the tab took thirty seconds to a minute to close; clicking X to 
close Firefox completely took close to a minute to close. System specs: 
Core i7-3740QM with 16GB of RAM and an SSD system drive.  It's not due 
to a slow system.

I haven't experienced the issue since NoScript updated yesterday, so 
maybe that was related.
