[ OT? ]: Firefox hogging nwk bandwidth

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hey guys,

I was running an ssh session to a remote box from my laptop (FC6). Meanwhile,
I started a download of a tar ball using Firefox (v.2). And suddenly I was
unable to send any inputs to the terminal. It was like Firefox was hogging
all of the network bandwidth. I waited till the download to be completed, to
send further commands, so that i could really see what I was typing to the

Amused, I tried second time downloading a different package using Firefox.
Same thing happened. I tried a `ping www.yahoo.com` and it took at least
five seconds to resolve the host and start pinging the host.

Was wondering if anyone had faced similar situation.
