This sounds like a duplicate of bug #41055 and bug #38305, unable to view compressed info documentation in the GUI doc browser. Can you tell if those reports accurately describe what you're seeing? Specifically, are you info files gzip-compressed? And if you uncompress them does the doc browser work as expected?

Choosing any hyperlink causes 'hand' pointer to change to arrow and then entire GUI hangs. No other functionality remains. Often a reboot is needed to end the process.
