Mozilla applications freeze on Debian
 
I am having trouble with Mozilla applications Firefox and Thunderbird on my Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop. Both have somewhat repeatable freezing, often when dealing with file transfers. Whenever I try to upload an attachment to an e-mail, download some files (not all) in firefox, and occasionally visiting complex webpages the application ceases to respond. The rest of the system is fine. The mouse continues to display the 'wait' cursor over the application, which does not refresh if other windows are placed over it. A 'killall firefox-bin' from the terminal cleans up the mess, and I can immediately start a new browser (same situation with thunderbird). Galeon is no better.

I tried to identify a problematic library or other system problem using strace, but my untrained eye didn't see anything that's necessarily causing it. The ends of a few sample traces are included in this post. Other file transfer applications (gftp, wget, etc) work just fine. Any help would be appreciated. I'd be glad to post anything else necessary. Thanks!

I'm having the same problem. I can open pages fine but if I try to download anything it freezes.
I hope someone fixes this soon.

Maybe upgrading to version(s) 1.5 (available from etch repositories) would fix it.
