Bug in latest browsing protection plugin?

Ever since the release of the latest browsing protection plugin, Firefox 6 & IE8 will freeze up sometimes (for 10-20 seconds). When I disable the plugin in each browser (Firefox: Tools>Add-ons; IE8: Tools>Manage Addons), the problem goes away. I have F-secure installed on another computer and that computer has the same problem. I scanned both for malware & performed disk checks. Anyone else having this problem? (I have F-Secure Internet Security 2011 & Windows XP SP3)

    I forgot to add to the previous post: The temporary "hanging" only occurs when Firefox 6/IE8 is loading a page (i.e. after clicking on a link). The problem does not occur with Chrome. Also, I am running 32-bit XP SP3. Thank you.

    I tried re-installing FSIS 2011 -- temporary freezing still occuring when browser plugins are activated.

    Yes, freezes sometimes on page loads and generally slows down both Firefox and IE, IE9 is actually complaining constantly about BW slowing it down.
