FF Portable 2.0.0.20 Problems with Google

I have FF Portable 3, which is working fine, as well as a standard Windows installation, also working fine.

However, I have strange problems with FF 2.0.0.2--

In the Google search bar in the upper right-hand corner of the browser, the automatic search suggestions no longer work.

When I try to access my Gmail, I get the message "This is taking longer than usual. Try reloading the page," and it never loads up.

Most frustratingly, when I visit a page with a Google ad, the entire browser freezes up and I have to close it with ctrl+alt+del.

For

For example:

www.studystack.com/Spanish

When I visit it using any browser other than FF Portable 2.0.0.2, the site is fine.

If I visit it using FF Portable 2.0.0.2, the browser freezes up completely, with some message about a Google ad loading at the bottom.

Page Itself / Upgrade

It looks like that page doesn't work in any Firefox 2.x I try it in (granted I killed the process after 30 seconds). It works just fine in Firefox 3 and Firefox Portable 3, though. I'd suggest upgrading as Firefox 2 is no longer supported.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
