IceCat freezes on pages with flash, if one does not use Figues's workaround: 
"set dom.ipc.plugins.enabled to false".

Please, do not do the following, without having a backup of the .gnuzilla 
folder (explanation below).

To reproduce the freezing, set dom.ipc.plugins.enabled to true, as it comes by 
default, and try to open simultaneously this set of pages:

Actually, just http://www.folha.uol.com.br, as an example, makes it freeze by 
several minutes. But with those, I could not wait forever...

Any other page with flash would serve to the purpose, I wonder.

Worse yet, if you did not do a backup of the .gnuzilla folder, your addons, 
settings, bookmarks, etc will risk to be lost, because IceCat will not load 
anymore (not always, but happend twice with me, fortunately, I have backups, 
backups, ...). Trying in a terminal, the message errors iare similar to the 
ones in the first mail of Figue.

I have not noticed that, sorry.
