Typically Freezeframes can only be made of clips, not from a sequence. Match to your clips and then try the freezeframe. If you need to make a freezeframe of an effect in a sequence, do a mixdown and then load that mixdown into the source monitor, park on the needed frame and create your freezeframe.

After match framing you are selecting the source window before going to the clip pull down window?
Note here, you can also select the type of freeze if you have interlaced material.

You can also add a zero speed time warp effect, at a given point.
This is good if you are trying freezes at different places on your clip.
