    Exclamation Last update made my computer lag so much more 2-25-12

    If anyone can point me to the files that where included in that update please post them so i can delete them!

    It seems to lag everything from system resources to web-pages.

    No one is going to be able to tell you that because not only have you not told us which version/variant of Ubuntu you are using but we don't know how often you update. Less frequent updates result in larger updates.

    Do you see the problem after rebooting?

    If you run htop or top in a terminal window do you see one or more applications taking more than its fair share of resources?

    Yes it's there after re-booting.

    I don't have the answer but my gut feeling is that as plugin-container is related to Firefox and between them they are using 40% of your memory that is where your problem lies. A Google search confirms many other users are having similar problems.

    Do you have a lot of Firefox extensions installed?

    I'm thinking perhaps you should disable all of your extensions and re-enable them one at a time. May be just one extension is the source of your problems?
