Firefox becomes unresponsive and the window dims to gray. Viewing and downloading stuff on Gnome.
As well as simple navigating between pages. Basically, any time the window changes (I guess that's the best way I can describe what's happening) it freezes. After a few seconds it will come back (allot times wont), but it's still annoying, especially cause it keeps happening.
I am running Ubuntu 8.05LTS Firefox 3.0
How can I double check what Firefox I am using?
I have no plugins in mine, and it hangs like that sometimes. I've tracked it down to the act of trying to connect to a remote server. It stops doing anything in any thread until some response happens from that network connection attempt. But this doesn't happen for every connection attempt. Still, I've found running everything through a local proxy server helps.
