I get a very slow performance of Mozilla (do you remember 0.6?) when I start another application like Appleworks 6.2 or iTunes. My build is 0.9.5 milestone, I run OS X 10.1.1 on a Powerbook G3 Lombard with 192 mb ram. The slowness is when I type and when I move through windows ans messages. Very slow. It appears the colored disc instead of the clock, and the user has to wait. It is such a pain in the neck... If I quit the other application, Mozilla comes back to behave quite good.
I would agree, to a point. If you run top and monitor Mozillas CPU usage, you may notice that it ‘s starting to get greedy. Starting up Mozilla with no windows your around 4-5% run the browser buster test for 5-10 minutes watch the CPU usage grow. After 5-10 minutes close all browser windows and watch as the CPU usage slowly decline. So I think the problem is just that Mozilla tends to be more CPU greedy right now.
well, I verified this. I tested with Internet Explorer running: no problems. With Appleworks 6.2 running: big problems, it sucks more than 30% CPU time and poor Mozilla suffers this. Again the same with iTunes up and playing streaming audio. It seems that Apple software sucks a lot of cpu power. Bad engineering? This is really awful. So maybe Mozilla just does as much as it can, due the overall situation of my machine...
Reporter: 0.9.5 is old. Please try a more recent build: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/mozilla-macosX-trunk.smi.bin
well, much better with 2001111609. Anyway the colored rotating disk appears anytime I move through folders in Mail/News and when I do other operations like moving messages etc. But now I can use it. It happens that I cannot edit the Message filters. Should I redescribe them anew?
