This has been happening to me for at least the past 6 months, maybe a year.

I went digging for a bug report and was surprised hardly anyone's posted about it.

Basically, the first time you open a pdf, either from your own computer or in firefox, the entire system locks up for a number of seconds - 10-30 on my dual core laptop.
Even VLC videos stop playing.
