Firefox causes amarok to skip/pause.
I'm running Suse 10 on the box referenced in my sig below. After I found the RPMs for Firefox 1.5 and installed them I noticed it frequently caused problems when I tried to listen to music files and surf the web at the same time. The best way I can describe it is like when you have a bad CD or bump into the player, but these files are being read off of the hard drive. I can't pin it to one single action, but scrolling wiht the wheel mouse up/down the page, opening a new tab, switching tabs, and switching to Firefox after it has been minimized all seem to cause this. The problem isn't constant, but does occur with enough frequency to be a real annoyance. I've switched back to version 1.07 which is the most recent version that comes with the distro, and now notice that it does this as well. I guess I could have overlooked this in the past, I can't say for sure.
Has anyone else experienced this? Is this a limitation of Linux's ability to mulitask, or is one of the two programs involved doing something wrong?
