SBOD with every pointer move.

Seems TenFourFox kicks up some system calls that get loopy as the system is running. So the Spinning Beachball of Death starts to pop up with every pointer move or click. After months and months of the problem I rebooted. Problem gone!

But NO OTHER apps seem to have this problem. System Monitor reports "null is not responding" seems it is NOT getting proper identification from TenFoutFox. Could this be the cause of the system throwing the SBOD?

    Oh now Activity Monitor shows TenFourFox as the Process Name. I will watch for that in the future to see if there is a relation to the SBOD.

    Please try using the browser in Safe Mode for a while (Help>Troubleshooting Information>Restart with Add-ons Disabled) and see if the problem persists.

    It would be helpful to know which kinds of websites (and how many at once) you're trying to load when the stalls occur. Or does this always happen no matter what's loading or whether anything is loading at all?

    'System Monitor reports "null is not responding" seems it is NOT getting proper identification from TenFoutFox. Could this be the cause of the system throwing the SBOD?'
    -> unlikely.
