Thread: Firefox and heavy hard disk usage

  1. #1

    Default Firefox and heavy hard disk usage

    Yesterday, i updated with newer flash player.
    After this, everytime i load firefox (and especially when browsing a flash page like youtube) there is a lot of hard disk usage, and sometimes it freezes fro some seconds.

    I don't have the same problem with opera.
    Everyone else noticed similar behavior?

    How many cache did you reserved for Firefox? (to find in settings)

    How many cache did you reserved for flashplayer? (right click on flash-video -> settings)

    firefox cache is 50 MB, and i have cleared it. For flash is 100 kb i think (same with opera settings). Also i deleted the .mozilla directory and i still observed the same behaviour.

    It has nothing to do with cache, since beside hdd usage i observe heavy cpu usage.

    Is your openSUSE older than 11.2?

    No. Clean install 11.2.

    I also observed heavy cpu load in nspluginwrapper.

    I have the packman and mozilla repositoires enabled, i have selected the packages from those ones.

    Videos from youtube are not smooth while playing. Dropping frames
