    It maybe an addon that is causing your freezing problems. Try renaming your hidden .mozilla folder to something like .mozilla_old Then starting firefox to see if it continues to freeze. Don't worry we can always get your stuff back again!

    I just tried out Yoono again and found out that they had a new version and it is working great for me....maybe you are running an older version???? The new version is 7.4.2 and is available here:

    Yoono - Twitter Facebook MySpace LinkedIn Flickr - Share and Download Youtube videos

    I hope that this helps with your Firefox freezes!

    Cheers!
