Has anybody experienced some trouble with Firefox freezing up.
I've installed it through apt-get and it keeps freezing up and then asks me if
I want to shut it down or keep it running. I have to shut it down cause it doesn't unfreeze.
Any ideas on how to solve this or is this version of firefox simply just buggy?

Try AdBlock+ from the extensions website. It might help in blocking misbehaving flash ads. Like some resource hog flash ads I've come across lately!
