    IceWeasel freezes & What to do about it

    .
    I get OS freezes and lots of cpu activity using IceWeasel.

    I seem to develop a cranky IceWeasel some time after making
    a new Knoppix LiveUSB. It seems to be a progressive thing,
    starting with a few OS freezes while surfing. I can watch
    cpu activity and tell when things have cleared up. There
    also seems to be some attendant gradual increase in the
    ambient level of cpu activity which grows over time.

    I have run across an add-on which seems to address this
    problem and at least temporarily seems to reset things
    to where the freezes are no longer in evidence. This is
    based on the notion the a places data base, if it becomes
    corrupt can cause such behavior. An add-on can be added
    to IceWeasel to do this. See:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...nance/?src=api

    I'm interested to hear any fellow sufferers of this problem.
    Mine is a 2 cpu 64-bit 2.1 GHz laptop, running Knoppix 6.7.1,
    and using IceWeasel 10.0 and SQLite.

    ps

    I am also changing IceWeasel's browser.sessionstore.interval from 15,000 to 150,000.
    This based on sundry reports that this helps a situation such as I have described.
    This change may make the add-on unnecessary.
