Sometimes this happens when nothing is active but primary when something is loading. If I click the wrong hyperlink I can't correct it because firefox is hanging untill the new page is loaded. (tested on ubuntu hardy firefox 3 beta 5) Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start firefox 2. Load a heavy webpage 3. Click the inteface or the document, unresponsive and slow. Actual Results: Firefox became slow for several seconds (very irritating and frustating) and buttons and hyperlinks didn't work. It seems that especially large images can break firefox 3's performance. Expected Results: unresponsive firfox
Have you been running any processes with lots of hard disk io (apt-get upgrade, trackerd, software compilation, ...)? If so, this might be bug 421482. You can check by calling strace -f -tt -T -e trace=fsync -p `pgrep firefox-bin` The last number in each line shows the time firefox spends waiting for fsync.
