Firefox locking and unkillable

I'm quite unhappy with firefox3 on a 6.3p8/i386 and I'm in need advices
on how to fix this.
I use Firefox to display some sites that Konqueror won't work with, but
it is highly unstable.
As soon as I visit some sites, it locks up instantly; with others it
might work or not, depending on I don't know what: it might stand that
it locks more frequently if I click somewhere without waiting for the
page to load fully, but I'm not sure about this.
Am I the only one experiencing this problem?
Furthermore, when it locks, it's unkillable.
Here's what I have after killing -9 firefox-bin.
%ps ax | grep firef
13158 ?? I 0:00.01 /bin/sh /usr/local/bin/firefox3
13162 ?? I 0:00.01 /bin/sh /usr/local/lib/firefox3/run-mozilla.sh
13167 ?? T 0:39.83 /usr/local/lib/firefox3/firefox-bin
35238 p9 R+ 0:00.00 grep firef
I read "T" means stopped state, but I don't really know what that means
and how to cope.
Finally, just an annoyance, but might be related: everytime I start it,
even if closed regularly on the previous run, it displays a dialog saying:
"Your last Firefox session closed unexpectedly. You can restore the tabs
and windows from your previous session, or start a new session if you
think the problem was related to a page you were viewing."
and asking me whether I want to start a new session or restore the
Both choices lead up to a blank window (that's what I want).
bye & Thanks
