I Really Gotta Use My Bad Application

Greetings! In addition to trying to rid myself of browser woes, I seek solutions and/or commiseration for the following problems (in Windows):

  • Thunderbird hogging the CPU or hanging. Have you ever had Mozilla Thunderbird just become unresponsive for no apparent reason, until you have to go into Task Manager and kill it? This doesn't seem to happen much in Linux, although I have had it happen once or twice (where I had to kill it from the command line).

  • Trillian Pro spontaneously losing window dockings. I always attach all of my IM windows to a single container called "Multi-IM", but sometimes, when people send me messages, their window re-docks to "Away". I have Trillian Preferences set to Default Appearance -> Contact Windows -> Container: Multi-IM, so this shouldn't happen.

  • Flash making Firefox unresponsive. Sometimes I will be watching something in YouTube, or just loading a Flash site, when suddenly I get an hourglass or spinning circle, and Firefox just locks up for a few seconds to a minute. There's nothing loading; it just becomes unresponsive. Occasionally the application will ask me if I want to disable scripts on that page (which I take to mean "in that tab for that page", but maybe it persists across tabs?

Anyway, has anyone ever encountered one of the above problems, or heard of them, and if so, do you know of any solutions? Thanks!
