You have been subscribed to a public bug:
Firefox started to become very unresponsive lately (past days). The
problem may not be in firefox as miro 1.2 exhibits the same problem. It
looks like an X interaction issue because compiz is taking some CPU as
WRT firefox, it often starts taking 100% CPU (and sometimes more - 2
cores system) for 30 seconds or more. This happens often when playing
videos: on youtube with flash. Video starts skipping, etc... Miro
sometimes displays some warnings. I haven't tried with another video
player (vlc) to see if they also have problems.
I have no idea how to debug this further as usually I can't do anything
(e.g. strace firefox) until the system becomes responsive again.
** Affects: firefox-3.0 (Ubuntu)
