When the FF downloads.rdf file gets large, FF gets kind of evil on my box.
Usually located somewhere like :
Mine was 1/2 meg. and firefox would spin 99% cpu trying to start
downloading helper app related links--realplayer, hxplay, mplayer, etc.
Basically FF locks for 20-30 seconds.
Not every time, but usually the first attempt yields a 4-5 seconds lock,
then additional tries of the same download exhibit the 20-30 second lock.
Clearing downloads makes the problem go away...helper app startup is
very fast every time.
Do you think this is worthy of a bugzilla entry? Anyone else have a big one?
