Re: browsers (galeon; mozilla) really slow

for the past two or so weeks, galeon especially, but also usually

mean up to an hour. lynx and w3m, OTOH, load the same pages in normal
time. i'm utterly miffed as to what could be causing this -- has
anyone seen something like this? for the record, i'm running galeon
1.2.5 and mozilla 1.0.0.
Are you running out of drive space on any of your partitions?
Have you restarted X lately, and killed any moz processes while X/[?]dm
is not running?
Maybe rename your .galeon and/or .mozilla directories temporarily and
restart Moz/Galeon to see if that makes a difference?
See if the problem exists in another graphical browser, such as
Konqueror or dillo or mozilla-firebird.
Does it happen for another user? Using a different GUI environment
(icewm vs KDE vs wmaker, etc)? On a different X session (log in at VT2,
then "startx -- :2")?
Is this dial-up, or cable LAN, or what? Do you have another connection
you can try (a different ISP, take the box to a friend's house, college
library jack, etc)?
