Adobe Reader's plugin is known to cause problems with Firefox. Have you tried using Adobe Reader Speedup? It's known to alleviate such problems by lessening the files Reader needs to load. http://www.tnk-bootblock.co.uk/prods/misc/index.php
Have you tried Adobe Reader 6.0.1?
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040514 Acroread 5.0.7 I have exactly the same problem on my Mozilla on Linux since this version 1.7. 1.6a was no problem at all. The CPU load is at high during the freeze of Mozilla.
in large PDFs Adobe 6 will cause Firefox to Hang in XP Pro this could be an issue with AR6 but it is Recreateable.
This worksforme using Firefox 0.9 / Acrobat Professional 6.0.2. Please reopen if you can reproduce this using the latest version of Acrobat / Adobe Reader and a recent version of Firefox.

Yes I agree. With Acrobat 5.0.9 (Mozilla 1.7) it was solved.
This was fixed by updating Adobe Acrobat Reader to version 6.0.2, at least in Mozilla suite on Windows. Hopefully will fix FireFox also. To update, open the reader and go to Help/Updates.
