FireFox3 - Terrible performance
Okay, I've been putting off the issue of looking at FireFox3's performance on my Linux setup for a long time, but it's really starting to annoy me.
For some reason, it just performs very poorly on my system. On all of my other system it's fine.
I've tried compiling, though I couldn't find the source code at all. I've tried using SwiftFox instead, but it pretty much has the same issues. All of this even happens on default with no add-ons.
I've tried to mitigate the problem with the home directory by clearing up cruft and organizing better, putting frequently accessed files in their own directory in the root tree, but I really don't like to have to do that.
Does anyone know how I can figure out what the problem is with it, and maybe how to fix it? I've thought about running it through strace, but that would be such a massive amount of data, and I wouldn't really know how to analyze most of it.
