I have this issue in Gutsy Tribe 5 with all upgrades installed. After loading some pages, Firefox unexpectedly freezes when I try to open a link. Status bar displays messages such as "Done" or "Stopped" but nothing appears in the window. Then I close Firefox clicking X button or Exit. Firefox window is closed but Firefox process probably remains active in background and prevent me to open a new Firefox session with message "Firefox is already running ....".
Firefox process doesn't appear in KSysGuard but this is the output of command ps ax:

marco@maini-desktop:~$ ps ax | grep firefox
 7022 ? S 0:00 /bin/sh /usr/bin/firefox
 7034 ? S 0:00 /bin/sh /usr/lib/firefox/ /usr/lib/firefox/firefox-bin
 7038 ? Sl 0:37 /usr/lib/firefox/firefox-bin
 7573 pts/2 R+ 0:00 grep firefox
Killing all Firefox processes is the only solution that I know to workaround this issue.
I haven't extensions installed and neither Java package. I have Shockwave Flash 9.0 r48 installed.
Do you think that a backtrace may be useful? Feel free to ask every information you need. I think this is a very annoying bug in Gutsy. Thanks.
