Have you tested FF 2.0? How does it work for you? I have problems with frequent/nearly constant CPU overload. Monitor shows between 50 and 99% and performance is slow. Same phenomena with PW-FX2.0. Nothing like that with FF1.5.0.7 or PW-FX1.5.0.7.

I'm sorry to hear that, Melf.
I installed FF 2.0 immediately after release by emptying my FF 1.5* folder and stuffing FF 2.0 into it.

It runs just fine here. No problems... except breaking some extensions... but that was expected.

Thanks Ben, thats good to know, as a reference. The CPU load seems dependent of the size of the FF window. At a certain point of window size the CPU load, when FF's idling, is going down to 1,1% or up to 76%(make it lesser or bigger from that point). The mouse pointer is flickering. Even if load is 1,1% it is very easy going up when using FF (not idling).
I installed FF2.0 in a folder of its own for test purpose.

I also use ecs 1.2 MR
athlon 2600+
~760MB RAM
but just VBE-graphics

It is related to your personal toolbar. If there are more bookmarks in it than can be displayed is when this happens.

Yes,you're absolutely right! That seem to be the problem. If I get rid of my bookmarks in "Bookmars Toolbar", the funktionality is near to normal. I reported it as a bug. Couldn't see it was reported before.

Now that's a useful piece of knowledge... I'll file that one away.
