While using FireFox 4, the program is really sluggish and it take some 3-5 seconds and even longer for it to respond to a command at times. This is a continuous problem that happens almost every click. than with the scrolling of a page, when you have something that is fairly long, and your scrolling down the page, either with dragging the bar or using the scroll bar. the page will just freeze up for some times up to 8-10seconds than all of a sudden start scrolling again for half a window before it does it again. I have uninstalled and re-installed Firefox 4, as while as my Ubuntu OS 10.10 and than again twice when I upgraded to 11.04 thinking that was a problem. I prefer Firfox over another browser but have been using Chrome to do things cause it does not have these issues. No other programs exhibit this problems other than firefox 4 which is that the best browser design I have seen and fits my needs well.
