    Firefox and Thunderbird freezes

    Since the first beta of 13.04 I have freezes of Thunderbird and Firefox. They seems to freeze when not in focus. It is hard to identify exactly when the freeze happens. On average have 4 freezes a day. Any ideas how to solve this?

    It's a bug in the gtk oxygen engines apparently.

    I doubt it will be fixed before Raring is released so this is going to impact a lot of Firefox users.

    As suggested in the bug #1142213 comments, switching to Raliegh GTK2 theme seems to help, at least as a temporary workaround. Good to see it's an already known bug.
