Support » Everything else WordPress » Scrolling support forums insanely slow in GNU/Linux

  • (I tried searching through the archives for this but I kept running into posts on WordPress post slowness. I am not talking about that.)

    I am talking about these support forums. I am working with Firefox 1.0.7 (waiting for my distribution to package 1.5x) on Linux and these pages take ages to scroll. My processor usage maxes out as I try to move down and read posts.

    Is anyone else experiencing this? It doesn’t happen when I’m on another computer in Windows. It didn’t happen before. I am beginning to think it is all related to the evil (but somewhat cool) yellow fade to grey scripting things that are messing with the canvas somehow.

  • For what it’s worth, I’m using Firefox 1.0.7 on Fedora Core 4 with no problems.

    And I’m on RHEL4 which is probably FC3ish. This is driving me nuts.

    It’s behaving just like one of the older (and evil) gnome-terminals. When it needs to scroll, the X processor usage shoots near 100%, effectively making everything in the window seem sluggish.

    IF it is old enough, perhaps it is struggling with some javascript… I remember I had some problems with that on older versions of FF.

    Yes, I am fairly certain it is that, but older version of what (supporting library)? I am running Firefox 1.0.7, so the problem is probably not there. Could it be something else?

    Maybe it’s the way my distribution builds the thing.
