I have about 7 tabs open in Firefox on Snow Leopard on my Dell Mini 10V. About every 10 or 20 seconds it goes to pinwheel for about 5 seconds. If I just keep clicking between tabs, it will go to pinwheel as well.
I do not have any slow performance like this with Safari. I can have 15 tabs open in safari, be using photoshop, and other applications with no problems.
I downloaded Chrome and it went very slow and seemingly had the same pinwheel problem.
I have a mini 10v with 2GB ram installed and 160GB HD
Does anyone know what might be causing this? I would much prefer to use Firefox, but safari is the only browser I can get to run smoothly.
I am also having formatting issues in all the browsers. There is certain text on certain websites that either does not display (in Firefox) or displays replaced by a symbol of a box around a capital A (Safari). I have included screenshots of both while viewing Netfirms.com. Does anyone know why certain text would not be displaying correctly? This also happens on certain posts on MyDellMini, which is why I have to use a second computer just to post this now.
Thanks guys, you are the best!
