    I have, recently, been having trouble with Firefox 3.5 freezing frequently. I thought it was only this one site. I just had Firefox freeze while on MacRumors. I am wondering if there is a java problem or what. Has anyone else had this experience? Thanks.

    I am seeing this starting to happen with Safari, too.

    If it's in more than one browser, it could be a hardware issue. I'd schedule a Genius Bar appointment, if I were you.

    I have a MacBook Pro 2.2 ghz Santa Rosa flavor.

    I am not ready to call it a hardware issue, yet. I just had the logic board replaced in May.

    test in a new user first to make sure you even need to start tinkering around in /Library... if the new user works fine you might wants to start digging around in ~/Library

    if the issue persists in a new user try pulling the items out of /Library/Internet Plug-Ins to the desktop and see if the issue persists... not sure if this would affect firefox though... if the issue is cleared up with safari then move them back in in bunches to try and isolate it to a bad plugin... JavaPluginCocoa.bundle has caused some issues with safari and mail so you might want to start with it first
