Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

I had two Firefox running with two tabs. The screen saver was set to run
at 30 minutes of activity, and did run successfully.

Then, I switched one of the tabs, so that the active tab was displaying
music selection from a local radio station. The selection updates in the
browser each time a new song is played.

When I came back, the screen saver was not running, and the desktop was
frozen. Power recycle was needed to bring system back.

Hardware is an Acer 630 Travelmate, running on AC, and with 1GB RAM,
7.10 Ubuntu.
