For what it's worth, my problems with Mozilla 1.3 on -current look the
same way.  It *mostly* won't hang or crash while being used, but will
very often do so when I try to activate it again after it's been
unused for a while, and thus is mostly swapped out.  (This laptop does
not have a lot of memory.)  This might, in fact, easily be the reason
why I don't see anywhere near as many problems with the exact same
version of Mozilla (and dependencies) on the exact same date -current
on my workstation at work, which has lots and lots of RAM...
