    Angry npviewer.bin takes over processor

    When using mostly firefox,
    the npviewer.bin takes 70% of the cpu and even 100% and then locks the system. Not all sites on firefox but amazon, ebay, met office. Close the window and the npviewer.bin cpu use is not even registered using top.

    This seems to be a problem in 11.1, have not tried 11.2 yet.

    Any ideas - Thanks

    I have a lap top and table top machine both with the same problem. I will not go for 11.1 if this problem was not sorted in 11.1.

    I've seen this with every distro I've used. npviewer is used to load any
    number of plugins into Firefox and if those plugins are loaded (flash is a
    big offender, and probably the biggest) then they can request as much CPU
    as possible. Blocking Flash **** has helped me a lot and I've tried
    submitting a bug with Adobe but they are a bit slow to work on this it seems.

    Good luck.

    sorry I meant I will not go for 11.2 as this is not sorted in 11.1. This is unacceptable and if left some safety device steps in, thats when all the fans are going full belt!!!

    It was not a problem in 10.2.

    BTW it does npviewer does take control of the cpu with firefox closed and using Konqueror.

    Thanks

    Is there a work around?

    How do I stop Flash and what difference will I see?

    I have taken out the flash -player - Adobe Flash plugin and standalone player (10.0.32.18-0.1.1) and the problem still exists!

    Thanks

    Find which plugin the pages you are on are using and disable those to
    confirm the issue is there.

    Good luck.

    Thanks
    if its still npviewer.bin adobe flash was not removed. this could be, if you did not use the package manager to install it.

    try deactivating it in firefox plugins.

    also try Ad Block+ -> removes most of the ****.
