Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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.
