Firefox V3.6.28 no longer accesses Barclays online account information

Is anyone using Firefox having problems accessing their Barclays online account information (and other functions)? The problem seems to have started with Barclays 'improving' their online system.
With Firefox V3.6.28 (the latest V3.6 version), I can get as far as displaying what was the 'At a Glance' page, but if I try to progress any further (eg show the latest transactions of my current account), Firefox locks up with 99% CPU usage. Safari and IE8 do work, albeit somewhat sluggishly. Java etc are up to date, and enabled.
[I know I could try the latest (Firefox V11) but, for various reasons, I want to stick with V3.6 (which should still be OK).]
Is it just me that is having this problem?

I'm finding more and more big name sites breaking these days. As you say IE is sluggish, I suspect that your machine is too old for today's bloated, AJAX, web, although I've found the metoffice upgrade has completely broken their site for my older firefox.
Most highish profile sites, even Wikipedia, generate one or more runaway script warnings on Firefox on my really old PC.

If you use the portable versions of Firefox you can simultaneously install several versions including 3.6.28 and 11. Here are the links for those two:

For some reason, I don't look at this site very often. However, it seems to be OK with my Firefox V3.6.28 (which seems to be the latest of the V3.6es). There are one or two bits which don't seem to be active (or are empty), but nothing I quickly tried locks up the FF - even the 'animated' bits.
A couple of months ago, I did succumb to FF's daily exhortations to upgrade, and I went to V10.1 (the latest at the time). However, there were problems with some of the downloader and recording functions (for FLV videos and the like), so I reverted to V3.6.
Mine's also a rather slow, elderly PC, with XP Home with most of the usual updates. Occasionally, it too gets confused, loses interest, wanders off to do its own thing, and requires a little assistance to get its attention re-focussed on the task in hand.

Thanks. I'll try those first on my wife's laptop (which doesn't have FF at the moment.

Would you care to elaborate on what that means? Does 'portable' mean that it has to be installed on (say) a USB memory stick rather than on the hard drive? What happens to all your bookmarks and other settings?

Portable implies it is not "installed" into Windows and the Windows registry knows nothing about it. Yes, it can be placed on a thumb drive or on a main hard drive. The program's Bookmarks, plugins, extensions and all other profile items are located with the executable binary on the thumb drive or in the drive folder that was selected when the installation program was run.

So, if I want to use this method for evaluating a new version - and having all my bookmarks and cookies etc. available in that new version - how do I achieve that?

Firefox help explains backup/restore and export/import of Firefox bookmarks. I don't know about cookies.

As installed (no add-ons, plug-ins or other potential encumbrances), it seems to work fine, and is relatively fast.
