Re: Lubuntu slow loading browser, new pages, programs
Hi Ken and welcome to Lubuntu and the forums.
Thanks for posting with sufficient HW specs and important details to give us a good head start. What I'm wondering is: what do you mean by slow? Can you give us a rough estimate of how long it takes to load? Actually time it if you can. Also, how many tabs do you typically inherit from prior sessions and have to open during invocation? Last but not least, once you have either of the browsers running and it is well into its slow mode, please open a terminal and post output of
The last command puts top through three iterations and then exits. Hopefully, the last iteration will capture the CPU usage of your browser. You can leave top running all the time simply by running ...in a terminal to see what processes are taking up your processor cycles at the current moment. <q> will quit top. As a rule, graphical tools like Task Manager are nowhere near as informative in Linux as command-line query tools (they're not informatve in Windows either, but that's another topic for another day). Please enclose output in [CODE] tags (the "#" button at the top of Advanced Replies) for better readability.
On the face of it, I would say that a Pentium 4 may be the issue, since it is a rather slow CPU by modern standards, but it all depends on ones definition of "slow", so we will await your response.
