View Full Version : [ubuntu] Hardy Heron-gnome: application freezes and grays out

September 30th, 2008, 06:22 PM
I have browsed few forums and got to know that others also had this problem but seems like only in Gutsy.
My firefox freezes and grays out all of a sudden and it was so frequent. As somebody told in some thread, it was not hardy's or gnome's problem, and that firefox is the culprit, I downloaded opera and started using it.

Life was good with opera only for few days untill I started to face the same problem not only with opera but with document viewer, image viewer and so on. Now this issue is so frequent and the cpu usage goes upto 98%.

(I was very happy I got my pc updated to hardy and I liked its gui too. Also it automatically adjusted pixel range to 1280/800 without having to set up, unlike gutsy. :), I love Ubuntu :))

Same issue here :(

But it automatically grays up and resume to normal window after few seconds. Not sure of the reason.
