why does my firefox stall every 10 seconds or so for about 1 second?
Posted on 2010-01-07
I am working on a mac, but i am only used to solving problems on a pc.
How do i go about diagnosing this problem? the problem only affects firefox.
it also affects the ability to write text, stalls videos (but interestingly not sound), and is generally annoying. the problem is not to do with online provider - for example the problem persists when i am watching a youtube video that has already fulled downloaded.
Upon a stall, the activitiy monitor goes up. If i was in windows i would know where to start, but on a mac, this is my first ever trouble shooting!
I am looking for any advice that leads me to solving the problem. thanks!
