I'm not quite sure when exactly this problem started but it definitively did
not occur in October. So here's a list of all packages I've installed or
upgraded in this month:

My testing showed that no process takes up unusually much memory or cpu when
there's a "freeze". I also do not believe that the cause is Java or
JavaScript because the problem also occurs on sites which neither use one of
them.
