After a successful upgrade to Gnome 2.10 I have started experiencing a
very annoying problem with both firefox and mozilla.

If either i try to download something, or I visit a site that is well
beyond basic html, the browser completely freezes, but stays in a
[ksesel] state. Some example sites would be

I first though this was a scheduling issue so I have tried to use the
SCHED_ULE scheduler and playing around with /etc/libmap.conf and
mapping firefox to either libr_c or libpthread. But I can still
reproduce the freeze.

I should also mention that I cannot actually USE Gnome, I get the
gnome logo and thats it. I use xfce4 anyways.

Any pointers or help would be appreciated, I know this list is a
little flooded right now.

And please CC me as I do not belong to this list.
