Firefox hangs after putting Macbook to sleep
Firefox hangs after MacBook Pro is put to sleep. MAC OS X Snow Leopard. Normal service restored after force quit.

This keeps happening to me as well on my brand new MBP.
I suspect it has something to do with Panorama/Tab Groups.
Most of the time after sleep FF won't respond, but when it finally does I usually switch to another Tab Group.
The zoom animation for Panorama will freeze halfway through & I'll have to force quit.
Funny thing is even with the Panorama animation frozen, I can still use the file menu & save my session with the Session Manager add-on.
It now appears that Firefox will hang at any time, not just after putting the MAC into sleep mode. You are able switch between tabs but not a lot else. I'll try disabling the add-ons.
I've found that disabling the Panorama animation has helped a lot.
Haven't had FF freeze up all day, even after putting my MBP to sleep 2-3 times.
Too bad the animation was kinda nice.
Had the same problem (firefox and thunderbird hang after sleep) with 2011 MBP
Solved it by deleting the preference files - not sure if this step was necessary, consider taking backup copies first:
then, resetting firefox settings:
