    Update menu isn't working. What could be the problem? I have installed extensions: mouse gestures, fasterfox, downthemall, adblock plus.

    If it's not enabled that means it's not ready for updates to be processed. I have the Check for Updates, but it's not highlighted for clicking.

    Is what you mean?

    I've made some changes:

    chown my_user:my_group -R /opt/firefox/*

    as it was root'ed.

    After that menu is enabled.

    And problem was with flash plugin: I had to install it by hands...

    Glad I'm not the only one to have noticed this then! I don't know why it's so slow, but it is extremely annoying on slightly older hardware. There's a bug open about it, but no progress - seems it may be due to some of the patches in the Ubuntu version.

    Imagine if you're a brand new Linux user and out to try Linux for the first time...and you try Ubuntu/Kubuntu. And assume you have fairly new hardware (P4/Athlon XP 3000+). All goes well with the install, all hardware recognized, all is well so far! Then you say, let's browse the Internet and see how that goes? You quickly realize that your browsing experience is quite hampered by a sluggish Firefox. And you say <gasp>, I guess I'll just stick to Windows, Linux is STILL not ready for primetime!

    Fortunately, this was not the scenario for me as I've been using Linux for awhile ... But this would truly be ashame for any Linux newb out there.

    Well, I'm glad to see there's a bug open about it but it appears that it may not get resolved until Dapper ... <sigh>

    Is the slowdown noticeable on a machine this fast? If so all I can say is ... wow, how did they mess it up so badly? Thought it would only make a difference on old machines like my Athlon 800.

    I was getting lag of about 5 or so seconds when FF was rendering some pages.. it just locked up for that time, with 100% cpu usage. And that's on an Athlon64 3000, 512meg ram
