    [SOLVED] Re: PDF Readers

    If I remember correctly, Firefox has experienced a lot of memory leaks. Are you able to throttle your modem's download speed?

    If you have big trouble, move it in small bunches. Here's a question though: if you let the system idle, does it still go "hurk, BLEH!"?
