I'm also puzzled about this phenomenon, which started a few months ago.
Same problem with Google Chrome. I do not get these error messages, so
it has probably nothing to do with them.
Iceape seems to be able to load just a limited number of images. E.g.
if I open www.youtube.com, all images may load at first, but after
doing a search, the web site still gets locked up.
After this, the same site can't be opened with any other browser either,
for a couple of minutes. So it's the site that hangs, not the browser.
If I try Seamonkey in Windows XP in VirtualBox, then the site does not
get completely locked up, but it does slow down.
I am under the impression that adjusting some setting under
'about:config' might help, but I have no idea which one.
