My computer screen froze while i was on Facebook. I could move the cursor/pointer but couldn`t move anything else or close the screen by clicking on the "X" in the top right corner. Why does it freeze please and how to unfreeze it.??

Probably sounds like a stupid question but have you shut down your PC and rebooted ? If not,.. give it a try.

My advice is to try another browser 'cos Firefox 3.6 hasn't exactly covered itself with glory. If you're familiar with the Firefox way of doing things, perhaps you could switch over to "Cometbird" which is almost a clone of Firefox without the bloat.
https://download.cnet.com/CometBird/3...-11169701.html

If you're you're not happy doing that then try any other browser,.. Opera or Google Chrome spring to mind.
If your Facebook problems still persist after changing browsers, then it rules out browsers as being your problem. You should then look elsewhere for the culprit that's causing you Facebook to freeze.
A good start is to follow the tips posted by "Dai"
