Firefox hangs after switching between virtual terminals (Linux)

Hi,

I like to use separate user accounts / X sessions for work and personal stuff. Whenever I switch from one session to another (ctrl+alt+Fx), it usually takes a few minutes for Firefox to get responsive again. Sometimes it never does (typically on Mondays, after working in my "personal" session all week end, and switching back to my "work" session). Other applications (xterm, qpdfviewer, etc...) don't seem to be affected at all. Is there something I can do to fix that ?

Thanks,

 -Olivier.

Ok, so I followed the recommendations from this page and disabled hardware acceleration. It seems to fix the problem.
