Firefox not responding.

I am having problems with Firefox when using Suse 10.2. It continually freezes and will only run for a maximum of 2 minutes. This occurred after I uninstalled Google Sync. Any help appreciated.

First, disable all extensions and try it.
You could also start it in safe mode, and see that it operates correctly. If it does, then it's a plugin or extension most likely. reenable them one at a time until it borks up again, and you've found the culprit.
If it doesn't, re-install it.

Thanks for your assistance, but when I switched on after a couple of days away, everything was fine again. Probably needed a complete shutdown.
