Here is a possible fix available to the hung jobs problem:
(Not my work, I'm just pointing to it.)

Although instead of a cron job I actually just use a launcher on a desktop  
panel that does killall -9 npviewer.bin (and IIRC rm npviewer.bin.core* or  
something like that, sorry it isn't in front of me right now.) This works  
for me because I only really need it after the wife has been playing games  
on Facebook using Firefox. I use Opera with www/opera-linuxplugins and  
don't have any problems.
