Prompted by kaled's statement in this thread [webmasterworld.com]:
To anyone whose copy of Firefox freezes for 1-2 seconds every 10-20 seconds, just revert back to the older version.
An additional annoyance, as you type into form fields, it hangs there too, with your type magically appearing after the hiccup.
Could not locate the original thread he mentions, but using 3.6 here, and it's becoming annoying. It's gotten worse in 3.6, before I waste another half day doing the usual - disconnect this, disable that, reboot, cross fingers, rinse and repeat - was wondering if anyone had any resources to get at the root of this. I don't really want to roll back and cancel more nagware alerts . . .
XP Pro SP 3
2.8 Ghz, 2 GB RAM
Java Console 6.0.11 (note: Just noticed a bunch of other J.C's were installed and active, will report back if removing these makes a diff)
AVG S.S. 18.104.22.1689
MS .Net assistant
Dust Me and Live HTTP Headers disabled, not compatible with 3.6 (boo hoo, I miss them, haven't checked on these yet.)
You can probably see why I don't want to discombooberate things until I see if someone has a direction to go.
