mail. google, etc.

Reproducible: Sometimes

2.the browser will randomly freeze, not always on the same site
3.kill -9 to stop it

Actual Results:  
after the freeze and the kill -9 i start the browser again go the same webpage
and it works.

I have the same problem. I have not seen this before in earlier Red
Hat versions.

E.g., home page CNN and Washington Post freeze me at the moment.
Problem goes away (for me) if JavaScript turned off. I am using
the Redhat 9 with the bundled mozilla.

Turns out my problem above was due to the plugger plugin. I removed it
for now and things work fine.

Can you still reproduce with recent nightly build of Mozilla Firebird?
And please make sure you are using new profile and no extensions or plugins.
