There would be more, as it says there are 94 tasks, but I can't seem to scroll to access/copy it, thats all that will fit on a maximised window, I have no idea how to be able to copy the rest, that which would be below the last line above. This is the reason why I never paisted it in the first place, as it would have been incomplete, and therefore perhaps of no use to you, so if you can tell me how I can copy the whole, I will gladly post it.

 

I can see them all, and scroll to them all by viewing it via the Process Table in KDE System Guard (ctrl+esc), but other than typing them out one by one, I don't know how to copy the info from there to here. Sorry, but I just don't know how to do it

 

[edit] just edited to change my user name in the list to jagwah

The top command will switch to the non-displayed processes and show them a bit later. Take a close look at top for some time and you will notice that there will be TWO pages switching after approximately five seconds back and forth.

Yes I see that it switches, and have been watching it for a while, but when it switches 99% seem to be the same as before the switch, only adding a couple of extras. I must go know, back this afternoon.

Thanks

arctic: by default here, it doesnt 'toggle' to the other undisplayed processes every few seconds, rather it just updates the top however many displayed listed by cpu usage.

 

to get a better idea of what it's up to, you can do top -b > somelogfile

Hmm, my fedora box toggles back and forth if there are more processes running than fit on the page... :unsure:

How did you install firefox? Is it a Mandriva rpm, or a mozilla binary package

 

I downloaded it from the Mozilla/Firefox site, I use 4 extensions with it,

 

Add Bookmark Here

Inline Google Definitions

Plain Text To Link

Net Usage Item

 

When I look at the entries in KDE SystemGuard ProcessTable, where I am able to scroll easily and see all the tasks, there isn't anything else that comes close to using what Firefox is using, other than the ones that say 0, the vast majority are only 4 digit, with a dozen or so in the 20000 to 40000 range, and X being next inline to Firefox.

Firefox's ram usage is on the high side but not totally out of line. However, there is no way that firefox should have a 99% cpu usage. With 2 gigs of ram, I assume you are not running a PIII. Please post what cpu you are using.

When any process takes up 99% cpu, your system will start to crawl. I don't know what accounts for this but the first thing I'd try is uninstalling your extensions one by one and see if the cpu usage drops.

hmmm, to tell you the truth I didn't even look at the cpu usage, I just run top again. and it's giving Firefox as 99%, however, there is no real performace hit, I can play a game off Quake3 with no problems.

 

As you can see in the one I posted before, up the top of this page, it was showing 3

 

:unsure:

 

Here's one just after a reboot,

Well, I have an MSI M510C laptop. It has centrino 1.6 , 512MB ram and ATI Mobility Radeon 9700. I am experiencing big performance problems. This problems is more visible when using Firefox. For example; when you try to " scroll down " the page, this picture is very jerky.

 

I installed Firefox from the original distro.

 

I am also using Compiz. I have very big problems with fglrx driver too. I am waiting for an update for that.

 

Dear experienced friends, can offer me some ways to improve the performance of my system?

 

I am saying hello to all from Turkey.

 

Regards.

Well, I'm going reinstall, not that I think it will have any effect on the situation, as I have a fresh install of 2007 on my other machine, and it does exactly the same thing, but I want to try the latest Kubuntu just out of curiosity to see if it happens with another distro. Then I will reinstall Mandriva and move on. I can live with it, I know what things will cause it, so I can manage it.

 

I've got reinstalling Mandriva and getting back to where I am down to a fine art ;) so it's no real strain.

Go into Tools -> Options -> Advanced in Firefox and check/uncheck "Smooth Scrolling" and see if that has any effect. Note, if this is Firefox 1.5 you're using, the "Smooth Scrolling" option may be in a slightly different place (I'm using FF 2.0 myself).
I am also using Compiz. I have very big problems with fglrx driver too. I am waiting for an update for that.
On many systems compiz can cause slight to major performance degradation. I would suggest turning it off and seeing if it increases your performance any.

But you shouldn't have to reinstall...this isn't Windows, almost all things can be fixed without re-installation...and those that can't, often won't be resolved by a reinstall anyways ;)

I had great problems with the FF2 from Mozilla ... and because of the Debian/Firefox issue I had to wait until today to get FF2 aka Iceweasel from the debian repo's....

What a HUGE difference.... many if not all the problems I have been having are suddenly solved!
