Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox

Just went from Dapper to Edgy on a Lenovo T60 with hyperthreading enabled. I run BOINC on both CPUs in the background. All was working well in Dapper.

Now, I notice that Firefox (and only Firefox) is *very* sluggish when BOINC is using both CPUs (with the 2.6.27-10-generic kernel). Firefox seems to work fine when I suspend computation in BOINC.

Tried to see if hyperthreading was the problem by booting to 2.6.17-10-386 kernel. No change, but Firefox crashed during experimentation.

I'll attach the crash report momentarily....

Thanks for your report.

If you could attach that Crash report it would be appreciated.

The crash report is too large to email. Even compressed, it's over 7MB.
I've put it up on my website:
neverland.ncssm.edu/~menchini/_user_lib_firefox_firefox-bin.1000.crash.bz2.

Please let me know when you're done with, so I can delete it.

Hmm. It's still there (
neverland.ncssm.edu/~menchini/_usr_lib_firefox_firefox-bin.1000.crash.bz2).
Perhaps we had some network problems. Let me know if you still can't get to
it.

Yup. Doesn't matter. I'm an instructor (and the maintainer of neverland).
My webpage (neverland.ncssm.edu/~menchini) should also be accessible.

Let me know....
