Firefox Freezing every 3 seconds

April 13, 2007 at 20:31:45
Specs: windows xp home edition s, 3.00 Ghz 2.5 gbgate
Every few seconds taht im surfing the web with firefox, the computer freezes, if i perform any actions, it executes all of them a few seconds later when the computer goes back to normal. ( i can still move around the mouse and type ) So its constantly freezing, and returning to normal, and its starting to become quite a nuisance. But the actual speed of the internet doesnt slow down at all. Anyone know what this could be?

gustavo ramirez, SWAG, sounds to me like the 'freezing' periods are periods of time when things get buffered while something else happens. Is something running in the background that is 'all consuming'? Can you edit?

no, i cant imagine that would be it, i just have just one window of firefox open and it still does it, i have rebooted my computer, an then close every single program i didnt need and it still did it. The thing is taht fire fox is the only thing affect, actaully, one other thing taht happens is that when i play my game ( space cowboy online ), it usually opens up a few seconds, but now it took like 3 minutes for it to open, but i dont lag in the game, strange...

I would suggest dumping that particular browser and instead opt out for the best choice, which is InternetExplorer7 baby, but then my reply would get deleted because a few people on here just hate MicrosoftInternetExplorer.

Any second now these haters will report me to Weber.

Weber is our friend who keeps this site up & running for all of us.

It's your choice Mr. Ramirez. Use InternetExplorer7 and see feel exprerience the difference.

Does it do this in Internet Explorer? This could be sooo many things other than Firefox.
When Ed in Texas said things running in the background he didn't mean windows that were open he meant in the background as in ctrl>alt>delete. Look at the processes tab.
