It's been freezing on me like you wouldn't believe today, and I think it has something to do with the load put on the CPU by various sites. The trouble is, I need to access a few of these sites to do my work. WordPress is one of them. I've had to restart the computer five times via SysRq keys since when these freezes happen, I can't Ctrl-Alt-Backspace out of it (even with zap enabled) and I can't bring up a terminal or Alt-F2 to kill process. I can't switch processes, windows, or anything. Firefox just sits there and laughs at me as I threaten to bust the screen in half.
And the real funny thing is, people actually say this is a better browser than IE. I never had these problems on Windows.
What can I do to stop this? Do I just have to switch to another browser?
