I can't offer help but just a comment.  I had exactly that problem but 
very seldom and I noticed it was always on a BBC url when it would lock 
up and nothing I knew of would get it to work again until I rebooted. 
But that was when running Ubuntu 7.10 and Firefox last released version 
2.x.x. Upgrading to 8.04 and firefox 3.0 cured the problem or at least I 
have not encountered it and I do use the BBC site.
