Hi (and thanks for the quick reply):

I am running 6.06, yes backports are open, and Firefox always freezes on  
my when I use Flash (and I have changed the xorg.conf file and tried  
adding that line of text to a file, I can't remember, it's supposed to  
make it stop). I am going to try Konqueror now, hopefully it will stay up  
AND finally keep Java up.
