Computer: CPU feast




Maybe
I should say "the Firefox Image Zoom extension c'est la mort".

I've had two computer related problems lately: 1. Something has been eating my CPU up totally. I've been thinking my computer is infected or just plain old (it is too) but when I tried using Internet Explorer yesterday not experiencing any problems at all, I became sure it had to do with the newest version of Mozilla Firefox. 2. The second problem had to do with not being able to resize images in Blogger and with images resizing themselves. I wrote and complained about it here.

Today I believe I found the problem! I was about to unwillingly leave Firefox for another browser when I thought I ought to try loosing some of the extensions first hoping they were the reasons. First I lost the ones I didn't really use anyway. When there were no result from that I turned to the ones I used and really liked. The first victim turned out to be the perpetrator as well - Image Zoom. It seams to have caused both problems. At least I hope so.
Also on the good side there are more than one zoom extension available.

yay! i'm glad you solved your problem. blogger images dissapear from my posts randomly since upgrading to new google blogger.
after i re-upload the same picture a few times, it usually stays. sometimes i creat a new post + upload a picture, but change my mind, but blogger won't let me delete the picture, or sometimes my text won't format right no matter what, so i have to delete that post + start with a fresh one.
hey, what's that in your header? a potato? asteroid? fuball from your cat?
