There could be a million reasons for that. First off, what version of OS X and Firefox are you using? Second, are you saying that you tried to search for something in Firefox and you then had to quit? If so, what page were you on? What extensions/add-ons do you have installed? Does this only happen with Firefox?

it is the latest version of firefox and lion o/s. say I am shutting down my mac,
after closing down firefox, the wheel start spinning. other browser such as chrome and safari, no problem. I do not have add-ons on firefox.

Have you tried reinstalling Firefox? This might be a good first step. If that doesn't work, I would suggest that you try to create a new profile. If the new profile doesn't cause any issues, we can conclude that your profile is corrupted.
