Hi, over the weekend, a couple of our users reported problem with Firefox
libx and Gmail, I was not able to replicate yet, I wonder if you have heard
about it and have solutions.
"Recently whenever I have had gmail open, Firefox slows down considerably,
to a point where it is rather painful to use. Through selectively
disabling my add-ons, I discovered that this only happens when the LibX
add-on is enabled..."
"If I have a tab with Gmail in it and the LibX add-on enabled, firefox
takes 20-50% of my CPU (40-100% of one hyperthreaded pseudo-CPU). If I
disable LibX, or close the Gmail tab, or switch to the old version of
Gmail, firefox's CPU usage goes down to 0% (bouncing occasionally to 5%).
If I disable LibX autolinking and all other LibX features in its
preferences window (but leave LibX itself enabled), Firefox takes 15-35% of
my CPU, so it helps, but not enough. "
