Using FIrefox 18. It Stutters when I stream from Pandora music website. Any solutions? Thanks.

Posted

Simple. The music 'stutters' or 'breaks up' during play when i am streaming from Pandora. It happens on other radio and music websites, but I don't use others much except for Pandora. Windows XP SP3, Firefox 18, 1.7 GB RAM and 1.8 GH clock PC.

Any thoughts how to resolve this issue?

Thanks.

Note: It mostly stutters when it first starts playing EACH SONG - and stutters for about 10-15 seconds, then 'settles down' and nothing in Pandora's FAQ or help system addresses this error, or resolves the problem. And I am using Firefox because Chrome leaks memory like a sieve and maxes out my computer no matter how much RAM is available, and IE no longer works (IE8 won't load, and IE6 is unstable).

I am wondering if it is something in how it renders, but I don't know how to identify the renderer or to adjust it. The only other thing is that I do not allow third-party cookies because they tend to track browsers.

Did yo try to boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support (press F8 on the boot screen) as a test to see if that has effect?
