When I start the System Monitor I see between 50-60% CPU usage,
nothing, except Firefox, Thunderbird and the system stuff of
course, are
running. It uses 35-40% of 1Gb of live memory. It is an old

but was running fine until about 10 days ago!!!

When Firefox goes wonky on me, I switch to Chrome. That will tell me
if it's me or my software. Ric


I am going to try that!!! What I don't get is doesn't seem to be
constant??? Like right now it's not bad, other times it's awful???

Exactly the same here. Running Chrome seems to fix it, as that puts
Firefox on notice. But, it hung up on me last night for about 3-4
minutes just stalling. Wonky. :) Ric

OK, thanks to everyone. I installed Opera and it is now at least 20
times faster!!! I had been using Firefox for years on Ubuntu and never
had problems before???

How do I make Opera the default browser??? For example when I click a
link in an email how do I set things up so Opera will be used rather
than Firefox??? As it is now it still starts Firefox even if Opera is
