Occurred daily and multiple times per session.  Certain pages (opened as tabs) would cause FFox to freeze.  Only solution was to terminate FF using task manager.  Tried uninstalling varios Add-ons (I use very few - less than 5 anyway) but when I realized Skype was the last thing I installed before this started occuring, I uninstalled the Skype FFox add-on.  Immediate solution - same tabs/pages that had caused the freeze (every time for those pages) now cause no problem.  FYI the pages involved were common everyday news kind of pages - perhaps with embodied ad software etc - but nothing unusual at all.

Great job on the product though guys!

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Had Skype FFox add on installed
2.  Try opening various pages as tab
3.  Can't tell you an example - but I was opening pages from Google News the last it occurred.  Same pages caused the freeze each time. 



not freeze and fail :)

Happens multiple times a session guys - this is not the "lost in the haystack" kind of bug
The Skype addon is a third-party addon and not from Mozilla.org
Please send a bug report to Addon Author.
