    Since a few days I noticed PF pages freezing and becoming non-responsive in Chrome (latest). I tried Firefox which had the same problem, and reported a hanging script:

    I have noticed some hanging as well lately but attributed it to having a lot of CPU intensive programs running. Do you have an example thread with the problem?

    It's not specific to a certain thread, more random which makes reproducing it difficult. Using Firefox eventually detects a hanging script.
