Re: firefox is regularly dying

I have no problems visiting the site you mention,


I do not have Javascript turned off. You might be applying very different security settings from what I am. You can see the page source with CTRL-U. It helps to closely examine the page source to figure out what the problem might be. And you can always wget it instead of browse to it. The <style> section is shown.

I often see Flash-using pages suck up a lot of CPU.  I have the
Flashkiller Firefox plugin installed, which might be helpful to

using a lot of CPU (but maybe not at the top of the list).
Sometime other animations (like animated GIFs or Java) can also use
a lot of CPU.

   a couple observations.  i deleted the flash plugin from
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, but that didn't solve the problem.

   more amusingly, i've found a site that has invariably locked up
firefox the last four times in a row i've gone there:


when i browse over there, the page starts loading, it displays but the
progress bar shows that only about 90% has been loaded, at which point
i get an I-beam cursor that i can move around, but nothing else works
-- no virtual console, no switching virtual desktop, no Zapping X,

   like i said, this has happened the last 4 times in a row, so i don't
think it's a coincidence anymore.  can anyone else pop over there and
see what happens?  it *used* to display fine, but not lately.
