I'm using ff4 with torbutton 1.3.3 alpha. When browsing with torbutton enabled and leaving a few tabs open, I then press the button to turn tor off. I come back later and that ff window has frozen, but if another ff window is open it works correctly.

Depending on what you mean by "freeze", this is a feature.

There are a variety of privacy-breaking attacks that are possible if you click on links in Tor-disabled state when you loaded the page in Tor-enabled state.

So the answer is that Torbutton prevents you from clicking on the links. If you want to do that, you should reload the page in your new state first (go to the url bar, click on it, and hit enter to load the page fresh).
