I rarely look at Twitter so can't comment on that specific site, but if 
I'm loading multiple pages at once my FF goes catatonic for a while, 
with the tab busy indicators not changing, no network traffic whatsoever 
shown by the ethernet switch blinkenlights, and no response to clicking 
on tabs. After a while it clears and goes on normally. I can't say for 
certain this is FF though, as my network connection was recently 
upgraded to VDSL, so I'm still trying to see if other networking suffers 
hangs. (But it doesn't seem to.) When I get time I'll try another browser.
