Thanks. I need to apologize though. I found the even with Epipthany the
particular web page was causing the same problem - freezing the desktop
. So I use Firefox and disable javascript for the page and it still
works pretty much but is trouble free so far. Firefox has been a bit
sluggish but seems like page's scripting is causing problems(?) I won't
harp anymore about this...
