Hi all,

Can someone assist me to sort out a 100% CPU usage by FireFox. It
happens with all 3.X versions. FF is unusable at the moment. I have
searched and see that it has been a problem in most FF versions and
Linux. I need an urgent fix. Our ERPII system uses Web Browsers (Web 2.0
& LAMP). The Windows users with M$IE have no problems, but it is banned
in our company.

System: OpenSUSE 10.3
Linux ~ 2.6.22.19-0.1-default #1 SMP 2008-10-14 22:17:43 +0200 x86_64
x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
FireFox:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.0.5) Gecko/2008121300
SUSE/3.0.5-2.3 Firefox/3.0.5

TIA

:-(

I had that problem and as already mentioned it was with the adobe acrobat or
flash plugin. When it happens I just used ps -elf | grep acro or ps -elf | grep
adobe and then killed the offending process. I finally set my default pdf
viewer to kpdf and the problem went away. I like the text/graphic selection
better in kpdf anyway.
