I think that the only way to stop scripts are breakpoints in Firebug. 
Never come across anything that would stop JS in the middle of its 
execution - let alone stop rendering of HTML.

But there seems to be utilities that can freeze a proces: 
So while you can't tell the browser to stop JS execution or HTML 
rendering, you can ask your OS to stop the entire browser.
