Well, I found out what my problem is. I was restricting 3rd party cookies.
Whenever a page would hand I saw in the bottom pane that doubleclick (or
something similar) was trying to load. It just won't quit. When once I
removed this restriction the pages load completely. Of course I am being
inundated with the damn cookies now!

I would disabled the third party cookies, many of which are tracking
cookies, and just hit the stop button when seems to be loading too long.
