I also have problems with firefox freezing from time to time (reported 3 times 
with no succesfull responses). I had this problem with v1.5.0.1 and now also 
with v2 on Dapper Drake. These intermittent freeze behaviour occured with and 
without extensions/themes enabled. Sometimes it occurs when switching 
desktops, sometimes when I close firefox, and sometimes just in between. 9 
times out of 10, it returns to normal after 4-5 seconds, but the 10th time it 
hogs the CPU and even waiting for several minutes will not bring the system 
back. I have to force a reboot by pressing the ON/OFF button.

This is something that need to be addressed, so please some good advice!
