Ubuntu :: Firefox Running Really Slow

Sep 30, 2010

I currently have 10.04 desktop version installed on my desktop. However my firefox seems to be running extremely slow. Can anyone guide me on the way of checking the system. Mostly is there a command that I can run that will kill all my unwanted processes. I do not do a whole lot on this desktop besides ssh and telnet to other devices and use firefox.

Ubuntu :: 64bit Os Is Running Slow

Jan 19, 2010

Ive just installed ubuntu 9.10 64bit os from 32bit on 32bit i had no problems with it running quite fast.Since 64bit has gone on everything i do is running slower update manager took 2 hours to download 202 updates in 32bit that would have taken less than 2 minutes i net is Virgin media 54 Mbs so i can count that out always super fast on 32bit.There is also a lag when opening files and folders and loading programs even in software centre surely it should be quicker than this . Everything works skype ..... ( vids work but cant pause or adjust vol on player).

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Running Slow / Speed It Up?

Feb 25, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 9.10, replacing Windows 7.

its running a little slower than I hoped it would, loading movies takes a while, and when i switch to full screen, it takes about 5 seconds to catch up.

im suspicious that my video card driver might not be configured correctly. can anyone tell me what I might need to configure to get things running smoother?

other things on the computer are also running slow, like opening Firefox, it takes a while for the window to appear.

- Athlon 64 x2 5200+
- Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2h motherboard
- Radeon HD 3650 512mb pci-e
- 4gb DDR2 800

and I do have ATI catalyst installed

Ubuntu :: Running A Little Slow - Jerky Even ?

Apr 24, 2010

I'm running 9.1 Karmic Koala UNR and recently (over the last week or two) the system has been running somewhat slowly. The boot is still lightning fast, but opening up programs takes a second or two, it can sometimes take a second or two for menu's to respond to mouse overs.

I've noticed the problems in applications as well. Streaming media over firefox (and I have a 40GB landline, I don't do lag) appears jerky as if skipping a frame or two while sound carries on almost as normal.

Netbeans (I have crash issues at the moment) also runs slowly, alt-tab takes a few seconds longer than every other program.

General Windows are just slow to load (one to three seconds) and menu's take a while to appear (2-3 seconds on mouseover or click)

Usually Ubuntu is lightning fast, I by no means have top of the range laptop...sacrifices have to be made... it's a simple Acer notebook.

Ubuntu :: Running Off A USB Stick; Very Slow?

May 28, 2010

Now that I'm on Ubuntu, I love the look of it. Navigating the OS menus is fast and programs are generally fast once they're running, but they're extremely slow when first opened (basic programs like Firefox, OpenOffice Writer, etc.). Is this because I'm running Ubuntu off of a USB stick? I don't know if I'd make the full switch if programs typically open this slow, but otherwise I love Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Slow Running 10.10 Laptop?

Oct 31, 2010

I have a slow computer. When I click on an icon say Firefox it can take 10 seconds to load. when I minimize and maximize windows you can see it happening. I get "ghost" screens where you see the window outline of the box but nothing in it or it may be white. The laptop is two years old and has these specs:

Intel core two duo 2.8GHZ CPU
512MB Nvidia 8600GT video
Realtek HD audio

What is going on and where should I start looking for issues? Ubuntu 10.10 was upgraded from 10.04LTS following the instructions from the Ubuntu Wiki and it was done through the update manager GUI, not the CLI.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Running Slow (Random) After 15-30 Min

Nov 21, 2010

I installed 10.04 on a Dell Vostro Laptop, under Windows. After 15-30 min, the system begins to slow down and then grind to an almost halt. The resource manager tells me that I am using approx. 30% of my CPU and about 25% of my memory. The slow down occurs if I open min. (1-2) apps or more. Also, I can not track it to occurring after I use a specific app. The only non-standard item I installed was a Broadcom wireless driver.

General :: Ubuntu 8.04 Running Very Very Slow?

Apr 14, 2010

My Toshiba Satellite Pro SP2100 with Ubuntu 8.04 all of a sudden is running very very slow taking ages to boot and is unstable. Some functions will not work at all and when typing the letters appear some time after they are typed. Nothing was downloaded or anything different it was being used just as it has been for more than two years. It has 512 ram. I tried the Mem test and after running for more than 12 hours showed no problems. I did a re-install no better, I tried to load Nimble X but it would not load and it has in the past, tried a Intrepid and it took hours to load but no good.

Ubuntu :: Speeding Up Firefox With A Slow SSD?

May 26, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire One A110 netbook. Presently, it runs Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10 and Firefox 3.5.8. The A110 is an early model with a slow SSD (solid state drive). Firefox was slow and often paused (froze for a moment). I tried several hacks in the Ubuntu forums and elsewhere to speed up Firefox. Some were not effective at all, some were very technical and at least one produced instability. I tried Google Chrome, which started out fast but turned slow. Emptying browser caches did not fix my problems.

I thought the slow disk must be the problem and moved the browser cache to a dedicated SDHC card. I've since been running with a dedicated cache for a month or two now, have never emptied the cache and Firefox still runs fast. I mean fast enough that it doesn't slow down my browsing (I'm not trying to set world speed records).

The A110 has two SD slots. I have a 16 GB SDHC card in the 'Storage Expansion', which is my data disk. The second is a card reader slot. I didn't want to mess with my data disk. I bought a fast (Transcend, Class 6)

4 GB SDHC, put that in the card reader slot and set up my Firefox cache there:

1. Type about:config in the Firefox address bar.

2. Tell Firefox where your new cache is. For me:browser.cache.disk.enable true.

browser.cache.disk.parent_directory /media/BD2C-8BD5/firefox (I created a directory /firefox on the card)

3. Tell Firefox to increase the size of the cache: browser.cache.disk.capacity 512000 (formerly 51200)

4. Check the cache is enabled, type about:cache in the Firefox address bar. For me it returns: /media/BD2C-8BD5/firefox/Cache

To get the name of the cache directory easily and accurately, open this directory with the File Browser, toggle to a text-based location bar and there it is. Cheap SD cards can be purchased on feebay. Select carefully, they're not all fakes. SDHC Class 6 is fine for a browser cache, handling small blocks of data. Cards only slow down when you do a massive file transfer. 2GB or 1GB should be adequate but fast and small cards are rare. Other memory cards can be used of course, but speeds vary between different technologies.

Ubuntu :: 10.4 - Firefox Browser Very Slow

Aug 7, 2010

I was using Freespire but the version of Firefox was old and I read that Freespire was an old and obsolete OS, so I installed Ubuntu 10.4. I like everything about it so far but Firefox browser is very slow. It can take up to 30 seconds sometimes to load a web page. Just surfing the web is difficult. I do have high speed internet service and a router, I have an XP and a Vista system both are fine and even this system when it had Freespire was fine. It just started when I installed Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: WindowsXP Running Slow In VirtualBox

Apr 1, 2011

I have WindowsXP installed under VirtualBox. Most of the time this works fine, but sometimes when I boot it up, it runs so incredibly slowly that it is unusable. My only solution to this has been to copy out the important data, restore the vdi file from backup and reboot. This usually solves the problem until next time. "top" shows that vbox is taking 35% of the memory (which is the amount I have allocated) and about 102% of my dual core's CPU. Everything else is running OK at the time.

Ubuntu :: Running Slow After Natty Upgrade?

May 6, 2011

Since my upgrade to 11.04, ubuntu has been running real slow. When I click on the firefox icon on the side bar, it literally takes over 3 seconds to start opening up. And the same thing goes for folders. Is there something I need to tweak to fix this? And my computer is pretty fast on its own, vista runs very fast on it if that says something.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Is Slow With Flash Sites?

Mar 14, 2011

Yesterday I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 . Everything is fresh new but my I can feel some lack of speed in the desktop and sometimes if you look really hard on the monitor you can see that screen is trembling a little bit. Not long before, the system freeze up and I had to manually force reboot.

I think that the root of the evil might be the integrated graphics from Intel Core i5 2500K processor. What's your opinion ?

Ubuntu :: Firefox Dead Slow On Formum But Not Most Elsewhere?

Jul 11, 2011

ubuntu 10.10 Firefox 3.6.18 I have been running ubuntu 10.10 since it came out and this problem just started for me in the last couple of weeks and seems to be growing worse.

Firefox was still stalled after 2 minutes of waiting to create this Post. The way I finally got here was to hit the manual refresh. Clicking on the URL Line and hitting Enter didn't help. I have noticed this happens on a few other sites, as well, but for the rest of them, Firefox seems fast. Chromium jumps onto the UbuntuForum bang fast.

I applied the fix I found at [URL]..It didn't appear to help. However just now, when I clicked the bookmark of that URL to get the URL to paste here, it loaded darn fast, whereas last time I waited 3 to 4 minutes for it. Does anyone know what is happening and how to fix this for all sites, especially UbuntuForum?

OpenSUSE Install :: Ubuntu Installer Running Slow?

Mar 14, 2010

I was messing around couple linux distros and a desktop earlier today. When I booted from the Ubuntu disk, it seemed to take like 2-5 minutes on each screen. So was basically taking like 10 minutes before I even got to the disk's menu. When i booted the machine off of openSUSE 11.2 disk it booted nice and fast, then installed without a hitch.When i put the Ubuntu disk into my laptop it booted fast and fine there.I'm just curious if anyone has any ideas why that desktop would seem to disagree with a bootable Ubuntu disk like that. Those things are obviously designed to work with near anything. It's a standard IDE CD-ROM, 7600GT, IDE hard drive, all pretty standard stuff.

Ubuntu :: Computer Running Slow With All Versions Of Kubuntu

Feb 24, 2010

My friends computer is extremely slow with all versions of kubuntu. Its very slow to boot, very slow to load applicatons, very slow to switch between windows, very slow to do anything. I can't think of what would be causing the slowness, its not new, doesn't have any fancy hardware AFAIK, but it runs XP perfectly well, its probably a 2.0+ghz pentium 4 processor. Do you think it could be a kernel chipset issue? Or perhaps a graphics driver/window manager issue? I don't know what the hardware is, is there a command I can run to list all the hardware?

Ubuntu :: Computer Is Running Really Slow And Screen Fades In And Out

Apr 11, 2010

I am running into a problem with my cpu using a lot of usage with no applications running other than firefox, one window... then the screen would dim as if it is going to screen saver mode, which is not set to do that after 473 minutes of being idle...because I watch full length movies... so if anybody knows about this please let me know, i dont know if I have a virus, but maybe xscreensaver is conflicting with Gnome screensaver builds or something.
