HTTPS Everywhere + Beef Taco hangs firefox?

Whenever I close all Firefox windows (not the app itself, I'm running on a Mac) and open a new one, it takes a long time for the window to open. Most of the time it is approximately five seconds, but sometimes the app stops responding and I have to force quit Firefox.

I have disabled HTTPS Everywhere and it stopped happening. As soon as I re-enabled it, it started happening again. Also, I have seen once or twice a dialog window prompting me to stop a non-responding script (or some other similar wordage), and I clearly remember the name HTTPS Everywhere being mentionned. Unfortunately I was not able to reproduce it, but as soon as I do I will attatch a screenshot.

I'm running the latest stable version of HTTPS Everywhere on the latest Nightly version of Firefox on Mac OS 10.7.5. My brother who runs the latest release version of Firefox on Mac OS 10.6.8 (well, the latest Snow Leopard version) has the same problem.

Hi! I'm just wondering if you can check to see whether this happens with a fresh profile, and/or whether it might be the combination of HTTPS Everywhere and some other extension(s) that are triggering it.

I narrowed it down to HTTPS Everywhere and Beef Taco. I've disabled the latter for now.
