I'm running Suse 9.1.
Processor: P4. RAM: 512 MB
I disabled IPv6. As a result, I can now blaze through the internet.
However, a curious behaviour arises when I have multiple tabs open. It seems Mozilla pauses or freezes up for about 1 or 2 seconds periodically. It's as though the CPU is bombarded for a moment and everything is put on hold while it churns away at something. Has anyone else made a similar observation? I'm wondering if it is somehow tied to disabling IPv6. I presume the RAM isn't a problem since I have 512 MB - and this problem arises even if Mozilla is the only program running.
I also notice that sometimes if I have a pdf file opened in Mozilla/Acroread pressing the "Back" button causes Mozilla to abort or to crash. It completely quits with no warning.
Anyone have some thoughts? Reinstalling Mozilla seems a bit drastic.
