ok. that is what i was looking for. you have been doing some searching.

just now found it myself on a different site by pulling in old history files;

http://tech.yahoo.com/news/pcworld/20081204/tc_pcworld/firefoxuserstargetedbyrarepieceofmalware

i do not have a 'greasemonkey' addon, but i do have 'noscript' and it is when
'noscript' is active that i get drastic slow down.

i have made no downloads, or logged any sites, other than what i believe to
be safe and always log on with 'noscript' set to block java.

what would be nice is to know just what script is so that i could check to
see if it might be loaded.

'noscript' caused no trouble until 2 or 3 upgrades back and then i started
seeing slow down.

i have gone thru and made various changes to 'noscript' configs, but nothing
has helped other than to disable.

i have also subscribed to 'noscript' forum and still waiting for confirmation.

for sure, i am going to pull wireshark and install it so that i can see just
what is going on when i try logging sites.

thanks for your help. very much appreciated.

later.


peace out.

tc,hago.
