When using Firefox, Privoxy and Tor on OpenBSD, I also experienced the
lock up.

Perhaps it is something to do with Firefox.  I am using OBSD 3.7,
with Privoxy, Tor, Lynx and Firefox from either ports or packages
(Privoxy 3.0.3, Tor v0.0.9.5, lynx 2.8.5rel.2, Firefox 1.0.1) Using
Tor and Privoxy with Lynx works just fine.  The problems occur when I
use Firefox as the browser.

I posted about this last February.  I was hoping that OBSD 3.7 might have
this fixed, but there is no improvement.

Have you tried using Lynx?  Which browser were you using?
