Peter Potamus the Purple Hippo pounded out on the keyboard:
Is anyone else having a similar problem:
you have something opened, like SM Mail. You click on
compose, and you have to wait and wait and wait. The
task manager says the program is not responding. After
a minute, then the compose window opens and everything
is back to normal, until you open something else. You
could open the browser, or bookmark manager, or
whatever, and you just wait.
I've tracked mine down to hostperm.1. If I close the
program and remove it, then reopen and things work
I've noticed the same problem with FF3. When I click
to open it, it would take a few minutes. I could click
on it again and a window would open. I would close
that, and the original click would finally open. I
removed permissions.sqlite and things would be back to
So, anyone else having any similar problems?
I haven't noticed any issues with hostperm.1.
I have found that the constant sqlite updating of so many files in FF
causes a lot more issues than it's worth IMO. I don't think most users
need the repeated updating of the 6 files.
On one network I admin, all laptop users stopped using FF3 because the
backup software wasn't configurable enough to exclude all the sqlite
files, and the backup was constantly writing to the server and bogging
down the performance. So it was a double whammy, constant sqlite
updating and constant backing up. On another network, I was able to set
up a FF profile in the backup software and exclude the sqlite files from
updating constantly during the day, but have them backup once on shutdown.
