User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; sbcydsl 3.12; YComp 126.96.36.199; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) Build Identifier: Fire Fox 2.0 just downloaded FireFox 2.0 just downloaded and now I am using Microsoft IE because the cursor and keyboard "hang" (some background processes have much higher priority???) - can't navigate around 2.0 quickly. Microsoft IE everything operates quickly - no "hang time" with either the cursor or the keyboard. Let me know when it is fixed so I can return to FireFox Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.move cursor to yahoo search box 2.try to type anything quickly 3. Actual Results: Click on cursor and hourglass appears in yahoo search box and you can't type Expected Results: you wait and wait till it decides to remove hourglass it should quickly allow cursor to go to new spot click and accept typed keystrokes instantly
How long is this "hang time" typically? Have you used an earlier version of Firefox on this computer?

(In reply to comment #1) > How long is this "hang time" typically? > Have you used an earlier version of Firefox on this computer? It "hangs" just a few seconds - 3-4 ? and then when you start typing it hangs again after three or four keystrokes for 4 seconds Yes, I have been using FireFox for two years? version 1.5 worked OK. Some background process in 2.0 eats up CPU capacity that didn't happen in 1.5 Dick
Does it work if you start Firefox in Safe Mode? (it temporarily disables plugins and extensions, this test will help narrow down the cause of the problem) http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_Mode
this doesn't have a testcase, so => incomplete please reopen if you can reproduce using a currently shipping version
