Does anyone else have trouble with multiple tabs on Digg?

Asked by aidje (3637 points ) September 3rd, 2008

Once I have a few Digg tabs open, Firefox slows to a crawl and eventually just crashes.

how much ram do you have? Are you running a bunch of other programs or loading other sites as well?

Are you running the latest version of firefox? sounds to me that some scripts suck up your memory. also try to update your flash player.

This has been happening for a while, but right now I’m using Firefox 3.0.1, Flash 9.0 r124, and Java Embedding Plugin 0.9.6.4. My computer is a Rev A MacBook Pro with 1 GB of memory. This can happen even when all I’m running is Firefox and maybe a couple of menubar items, and while all I have open is Digg pages.

This happens to me on a terminal server I use. It’s got 4 gigs of ram and there are usually only 8 people on it. I’m assuming that it’s something in the java/css encoding that makes it slightly unstable on my machine.

I can’t power-browse digg because as I try to open multiple upon multiple tabs the machine locks up. My firefox will eventually lock up if I try to do this too much but typically I have to force it closed.

(as an aside) Sometimes on digg, when I open up buried comments, the machine locks up for a minute.

@bodyhead
I do tend to open a lot of buried comments.

I get the feeling that Digg’s AJAX is just not very efficient, so that’s why I’m wondering if other people have trouble.
