slow firefox in 8.10? - 01-14-2009, 06:58 PM
I have a white mini 9 with 2 gb of ram and the 4gb* stec SSD. I wiped it and put 8.10 on the bugger from a USB. Things run pretty well on it, although Firefox is noticeably slow for me when doing certain things. I do have at least a few things configured to try to speed things up, like turning pre-fetching off (http://www.ubuntumini.com/2008/11/custo ... books.html).
However, I still get a lot of hangups, particularly when trying to scroll. It will usually pause for about a second or two before scrolling, and then it will be fine and scroll OK for a little before pausing again.
I usually have 5-6 tabs open, but my mem usage is never very high. Hopefully I can remedy this and it's not just slowness inherent in the platform. Thoughts?
*I am of course regretting the 4GB SSD, but I am holding off on upgrading because A)I'd like to see if the mini 10 lives up to expectations, and B) Perhaps the prices will come down a tad, with Patriot and possibly others finally making mini-compatible SSDs.
