Hi all -

I'm running a new install of Kubuntu 8.10 on a Dell Latitude D830 laptop (2.6Ghz Core2Duo, 4G RAM); all updates applied.

I've recently noticed the damnedest thing when running Firefox - at first I thought my 'net connection was b0rked, but ping times to outside servers were fine...

The problem is - when I try to browse with Firefox, it won't do much of anything until I start moving the mouse around within the Firefox window - it then connects to the remote site; if I don't keep moving the mouse around, it pauses in the middle of acquiring the page. Weird! Anyone else seen this?

TIA
Bob

Figured it out myself. It's the Interclue add-on. Deleted it, problem went away.
