Mozilla Firefox & Thunderbird = 100% CPULocked
I have a problem with two programs: Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird (both version 1.0).
On my main PC, they work fine, but on my Laptop (P3 500MHz 96MB RAM WinXP) each program takes nearly up to 100% CPU load, and loaded together they share the load fairly equally.
If I switch them to offline mode, they work normally.
I have not been able to get any help on the mozilla forums so far 🙁
The PC should be clear of spyware and viruses, and these are the only two programs that behave like this.
There is another issue on this PC, and it has to do with DHCP – it will work at first, but if I restart the PC, it won’t find a DHCP server until I enter an IP address manually and then switch back to DHCP. I am wondering if there’s something wrong with my TCP/IP settings. I have a way to uninstall TCP/IP and reinstall it, but I don’t know if it could really be related.
