Is it Mozilla that's locked up, or the X font server?

Thanks for the WFMs which motivated me to go and test on a wider range of systems. This appears to be a problem with an interaction between Mozilla and XFree86 4.1, still the default for Debian stable systems. It's resolved on my test Debian/stable machines by upgrading to XFree86 4.2.1. I don't know whether non-Debian machines with 4.1 would show the same behavior, since I couldn't find any! Still a bug that the browser locks, IMO...
So, do we know whether this is a but in Moz or in XFree86 4.1? If a bug in XFree86 4.1, I suggest resolve INVALID...
Martin: are you running Xinerama (bug 136362)?
Yes, I'm running Xinerama on the one machine that now exhibits the problem -- seems very likely to be the same as bug 136362.
ok. marking dupe of "using Xinerama and Xfs can hang the browser" if you can reproduce this without Xinerama, reopen (but I think that's unlikely) also, people in bug 136362 have reported the bug continuing with XFree86 4.2.x *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 136362 ***
