XORG freezes machine in Firefox right after boot
I'm running Ubuntu Intrepid on a Dell laptop. I turn it off at night.
Every morning when I turn it back on and open Firefox, I have to wait while the machine is busy/freezes for maybe a minute. This usually happens twice, but sometimes three times. The processor light is on solid when it does this.
I've run TOP from the terminal, and it says it's XORG that's running.
This only happens when Firefox is running, and when I first turn on the laptop after it being turned off for a while. Every morning, when I first run Firefox, XORG takes control of the laptop. Not a big deal, but frustrating and worrisome.
Is this normal? Is it supposed to do this? It is a little irritating.
