Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

There have been lots of problems ever since I upgraded to Gutsy, but
since installing the version things have gotten significantly
worse. I'd be glad to provide some diagnostic information, but I don't
know where to look, and I haven't been able to detect the patterns that
are triggering the problem. I suspect it's involved with switching from
one window to another, since focus problems started with the Gutsy
upgrade. The current form is a hard freeze of all of the Firefox
windows. None of them can update, but other applications can be run
without apparent problems. I'm not sure if the problem is with Firefox
per se, or with the underlying windowing system, because usually Firefox
is the only application with multiple windows at the time of the
crashes, and I'm pretty well convinced the problem involves lost focus
in the process of changing windows--but I don't know how to pin it more
