SMP kernel, Pentium 4D, xorg-6.9.0, and the following linux packages:
linux-atk-1.9.1/                   linux-jpeg-6b.34/
linux-expat-1.95.8/                linux-pango-1.8.1/

linux-flashplugin-7.0r69/          linux-tiff-3.7.1/
linux-fontconfig-2.2.3_5/          linux-xorg-libs-6.8.2_5/
linux-gdk-pixbuf-  linux-ymessenger-
linux-glib2-2.6.6/                 linux_base-fc-4_9/
linux-gtk-1.2.10_4/                linux_dri-6.5/
linux-gtk2-2.6.10/                 linuxdoc-1.1_1/

	after a short while (probably depending on user input) some thread
	in linux-firefox remain stuck so that various things don't work
	anymore e.g. clocking on a tab doesn't bring up the corresponding
	page (you can still use the menu on the right to bring it up),
	and closing the browser with the '[x]' button on the border doesn't
	terminate it (the main window disappears, but the icon on the
	window manager remains). ps shows the following:

	start the browser (on windowmaker in my case) and navigate
	a bit opening multiple tabs. It probably helps reproducing
	the problem to close a tab while it is downloading, or
	similar 'quick' activities, though i don't kow of a deterministic
	way of triggering the bug.

	no idea, this is likely a firefox problem so i just wanted
	to point it out in case someone else has the same problem.
