In that case, I'd try a different default depth altogether, such as 15,
just to see what happens.
You might also want to create a new user and log in as that user and
try, to make sure it's not user-specific.
You can also start Firefox in "safe mode" (Google; I don't recall the
switch) which disables all extensions, etc., (presumably flash and java
etc) to see what difference, if any, that makes.
The switch is '$ firefox -safe-mode'. I am running it now to test it.
In my case, I had Gmail running in Firefox and the screen saver kicked
in and at some point while I was browsing through some of my Linux
books, and everything just froze.
