Firefox freezing with Samsung 830

I am trying to figure out why I am having problems using Firefox on my newly installed SSD drive. Firefox will sporadically freeze up to 45 secs to a min while surfing random website. I've tried older versions of Firefox all the way down to version 11, the problem still persist.
I do not have this problem while using IE, this only seems to happen with Firefox. Has anyone ran into the same problem while using Firefox with an ssd and if so were you able to fix the problem?

ACHI or IDE mode? Did you do a fresh install with your new SSD or did you image your boot partition?

I think I may have solved the problem, the problem appeared to be the flash plugin within Firefox. The freezing symptoms appeared to go way when disabling. Then I did manually update for flash within the Firefox plugin menu.

Info found below.

Yes, I was going to suggest you update Flash. In my experience, 99% of browser problems are usually add-on related.

Remember to check periodically whether Flash and other plug-ins are up to date.
