Loading a website took usually more that ~30 seconds. Sometimes it took more than a minute ore two to get a website. I noticed that every time firefox tried to load a website my cpu raised it's frequency. Looking at the output of 'top' you could see that the process "Xorg" was taking more that 30% of the cpu time. As soon that the website was loaded the cpu time of Xorg dropped to about nothing. I'm preety sure that this high load is caused by the rotating throbber firefox displays inside each tab. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Simulate a really slow internet connection and load a couple of website inside a few tabs 2. Take a look at the output of 'top'
'top' while firefox is loading two websites inside two tabs: http://www.ubuntu-pics.de/bild/1453/topwhilefx3isloading0ENBJ.png 'top' right after the sites finished loading http://www.ubuntu-pics.de/bild/1454/topwhilefx3isnotloadingPLI6Q.png
