Hi folks, I recently upgraded to 2.0 on Windows XP and Linux (Debian). On both operating systems I have the problem that Firefox shows a great delay when I change, open or close tabs. It just stops working for ca. two to five seconds until it reacts again to user input. This happens with only two open tabs as well as more then ten or more.

Thx and cheers, Markus

Does it do this with a new firefox profile?

Thanks for the fast reply.
Since I'm not at work I can only test it on Linux. Moving the profile seemed to work. Additionally I installed the "NoScript"-exetensions since one can't surf without (Ads). It still works. But the close button (red button with white X in it) on each tab disappeard. It is just on the active tab.
And what now? It can't be that I have to "rebuild" from scratch all my settings? 

Cheers, Markus

Hi Steve, hi all,

any news about this issue? My Firefox is getting even slower and slower. Can you tell which files produce this behaviour I could delete them. Or can anyone here tell me the functionality of the files in my profiles. So I can at least delete them piece by piece to find out w3hat may cause this.

Cheers, Markus
Try disabling your extensions one by one until you find the problem.
But really, since it works OK with a new profile, this probably isn't a firefox bug, so you need to find support at http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewforum.php?f=38 or on irc at irc.mozilla.org #firefox

Damn me! Sure I killed some of my extensions and now it works as it should. Could've thought myself of that :(
Sorry, for bugging you. 
But there should be some possibillity for a user to see if the plugin/extension he wants to use is "good", meaning it doesn't degrade functionallity of the browser.
I close this bug now.

Cheers and thx, Markus

markus, can you figure out which extension caused the problem so that we could notify the author, and update this bug (for future reference?)

I can, but not today. There's a cupboard which still needs some paint :)
I take care of this in a few days.

So long, Markus
