Jim,

Is it stock firefox? What are you browsing with it at when it freezes?

I've had "many" temporary whole desktop freezes due to Firefox being overloaded.
Not sure who is the culprit... Gnome? Xorg? NVidia driver?
Guess nothing in the bios or lnux logs?
You could try another browser for a while and see if there are no more freezes...

I wouldn't say "many", but yes, it does. It also does things like slowing
to a crawl, and then there's when I allow something via noscript, and
refresh the page... and then have to refresh and restart the streaming
media that's running in another tab.

I've noticed something similar on Centos 5.6 when using
Firefox. I traced it down to the Firefox flashplayer plugin
- something called npviewer.bin

If I upload a picture to www.tinypic.com and then highlight
the text to copy the picture's url, right clicking on the
highlighted text causes Firefox to freeze, and swapping
desktops is very slugish. Killing npviewer.bin unlocks the
system again.

Is this some sort of bug in the flashplugin?

Kind Regards,

Keith Roberts

The Internet is littered with news of Flash bugs. HTML 5 offers the same
facilities except it does not hide information on your hard disk like
Flash does.

Thanks for the news. I don't pick all the latest very often.

Even back when I was running 5.5, I'd get those hangs/freezes. I went
into FF's Preferences (I think) and disabled flash. Most of the
problems went away.

One site I went to every day had flash stuff all over it. When I
disabled the plugin, in the places where formerly there were
"eye-grabbing" advertisements there was no just code. After a few weeks
they must have noticed, because the code was replaced by more or less
static images. So maybe advertisers notice when people turn off the
flash crap. And maybe that will make adobe eventually get their act
together. Hope so... I kind of like some of the videos.

you can use flash block plugin on FF which allows you to simply click on the flash objects you're interested in and let the rest just show placeholders

Advantages of FF 4 with HTML 5

Problems with no 'official' video format for HTML 5

An alternative to Flash

The last 2 links mentioned Linux problems with buggy Flash.
