This sounds like the problem I am having with Konqueror. Today it happened
with Netscape 4.77. Both from stable packages. Caught Netscape using 98%+
today. It was website related. When Konqueror locks it seems like top
doesn't even work correctly.
I loaded Mozilla Firebird from an upstream tarball today for i686. Went to
the offending website and Firebird sailed through with no problems.
I tried Mozilla from the upstream source on the notion that websites are
getting increasingly IE-ized (read that nearly all browsing is with IE now).
I guessed that Mozilla has the best chance of being IE compatible right now.
I don't know if my reasoning is correct, but the end result was desireable.
I hope that my reasoning is incorrect.
You might try getting the upstream Mozilla Firebird tarball and experimenting
on your own. Maybe there's just a bug in the woody package.
