I've seen this happen with all of Mozilla, Firebird and now Firefox. It's only certain web sites that trigger the effect, and it seems to happen on sites which make use of a large amount of Flash stuff -- the effect is even caused by Macromedia's test page at http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/welcome/ -- although quite often what happens is that the flash infexted page will only load once (if at all) and after that the whole browser freezes up and has to be killed from the command line. I'd say it's more likely a bug in the linuxpluginwrapper or linux-flashplugin ports.
