Since I have installed the latest Firefox updates I am experiencing something really weird in FF. It's as though I type faster than what the browser can handle.

Whilst typing there is a slight delay and then the cursor moves back one character. So the "previous" character ends up after the "next" character. It's great for getting URLs mixed up...

Anyone experience the same prblemo adn know how to fxi? I have checked for updates, but see tm ohave the lstesta version installed.

Is the program itself running slow in general? When you look at the resources used, is it using a lot of memory?

It sounds like there is something which is making the browser use a lot of resources - you may be better to create a new (blank) profile, and then copy your bookmarks across and reinstall any extensions.

Yes.

My Firefox browser uses Min 250KB memory. I know this is very high. I have two extensions disabled which are not compatible with FF 2.0.0.1. Could this be dragging it down? Is there a way of measuring how much memory each extension uses or is it just the case of finding out the name of the process?

Will look at creating a new profile - thanks for the tip.

I've established since my previous post that the lag is caused by a VPN, which I am being forced to log into to receive emails...
