I get this "blank page" behaviour from time to time as well. I've

Yes, I've experienced that behaviour too. And on older versions it will
sometimes load several pages and then they'll all 'white out', after
which they need to be individually reloaded.

But my symptoms this time are different. Reloading just produces the
same blank window.

I remember there was a time when I had to select the
open-in-the-application option instead of the open-in-the-plugin.
Perhaps I'll have to go back to that again for a while.

I too have problems opening pdf links in Firefox. After opening two (always two) pdf's any link clicked after that always results in a white screen (tab) with no document to look at. Once I restart Firefox again I can open two documents and then get the same result, a white screen (tab). This occurs also in Seamonkey (same engine?).
