The cpu usage raises to 100%. If another tab is selected while the first tab is loading, the cpu usage goes down and the first tab is loading as expected in the background. For http://www.golem.de, hitting F5 (reload) takes up to 60 seconds in the foreground, but only 5 seconds if another tab is selected after hitting F5. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open a tab (doesn't matter what is displayed there) 2. Open http://www.golem.de in another tab 3. Hit F5 (reload page) => loads very slowly, high cpu usage 4. Hit F5 and then select the tab opened in step 1 => normal loading and normal cpu usage Actual Results: Average load times: 3. 60 seconds 4. 5 seconds Expected Results: 3. should have the effect of 4. This is on Windows 2000 with all service packs and security updates installed.
Platform: PC, CPU=P4-2.8, 1024mb Ram, 120gb free disk space, Firefox 3.0.1 As above, when the tab is in focus it is very slow, creating an untitled tab and focus on it, the slow tab acts normal speed. I always start with the untitled tab open and then create a new tab to surf with. Awkward but effective. Doug Tidwell .
As above also with Windows XP SP2, Firefox 3.0.3 and 3.0.4. My Solution is to run Firefox not with "normal" process priority but with "low" or "idle" process priority (by Windows Taskmanager or permanent with Systemexplorer). stereo-sigi
Seems it helps, when you make with Windows XP in My Computer / DISPLAY / Preferences / Advanced / TROUBLESHOOTING / HARDWARE ACCELERATION from Full 1 Step down to 90 Percent. Two User wrote in the German Firefoxforum, that this works. http://www.firefox-browser.de/forum/viewtopic.php?t=64328&start=30
