Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve installed Ubuntu Hardy Heron (the most current version), which comes with Firefox 3.0, on a couple of machines. My most recent effort has left me wondering what could be so terribly wrong with this picture. On one of these computers, it is impossible to open more than three or four tabs (if any of the sites is using flash) without losing almost all functionality within Firefox. The app simply spends most of its time not responding.
Worked fine on my test system, but on my production system… well, production over. Can’t really use that computer any more. In a normal blogging session for me, I rarely have fewer than twenty or thirty tabs open. The “fastest browser yet” is borked.
