Re: firefox slowness -- X server problem?

Often my firefox becomes unbearably slow too. And when this happens 
changing to xterms and other X clients are slow too.  My usually 
solution is to close firefox tabs until it works or close (maybe kill) 
and restart firefox.

It usually has nothing to do with total number of tabs, but something to 
do with the content or scripting within a single webpage.

Does this slow down happen even if firefox is not running?

By the way, the buildlinking step in buildling some dependency-heavy 
pkgsrc build also makes my X temporarily unusable.
