Please, try the following:

1. Download this script https://people.igalia.com/clopez/printwebkitmemory.sh
2. Execute it and redirect the output to a file:

wget https://people.igalia.com/clopez/printwebkitmemory.sh
chmod +x printwebkitmemory.sh
./printwebkitmemory.sh > memory_stats_webkit.txt

It will print each 5 seconds the memory stats of your system and the memory usage numbers of the webkit related process (if any running).

Then when your system freezes, correlate the time at which the event happened with the data from the file.

Upload here the section of the file near the time at which the freeze happened.
