If it's what I think it is, then this happens to me when watching videos on YouTube sometimes. I'll load a video, 480p version starts playing, I switch to 720p then start the video again from 0:00 then just as I do that, Firefox locks up and stops responding. Then I have to wait a good 20 or so seconds before Flash craps out and Firefox is responsive again.
