Hi Folks

When I resumed atmy laptop tonight I found it a bit sluggish and the mouse pointer a bit jerky. On opening task manager I found

plugin-container.exe*32

using 50-52% of cpu. After about 7 or 8 minutes it reduced to 3-4%. Any idea what was going on? Its for Firefox by the way.

thanks

Not much you can do apart from ditch firefox, although iv heard rumours that firefox version4 will have this issue sorted.
