Hi 666philb, thanks for your response.
I am not sure if the flash version makes a difference since it crashed on a webpage where there was no flash video...however, i will try the flash upgrade just to test.
However, i still would like to understand what happens when you have a frugal install with FF in sfs file and FF upgrades automatically. where do the new files go ? and is it possible to undo that upgrade ?
Thanks

Michel

Nowadays this problem of slowing down FF after updating seems to have disappeared.
I just run 501 from the CD, with a fresh savefile on USB, and immediately update it straight to FF18.
I don't notice any slowing down any more.
And I also update to the latest flash, I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

I decided to give 501 another airing after testing many
other modern distros and found it looking dated and tired
by comparison, but is still working ok as a backup.

From FF About, button-upgraded the original FF5, first step to FF12, then
to FF45, where this modern version soon crashed as the system seemed
to be overstretched.

So re-installed to usb and this time stopped at FF12 for stability.

Java doesn't play nicely compared to modern systems.
Using Flightradar24.com as assessment, the little yellow planes are
there and call signs do appear though displaced with mouse hover.
But planes barely move and the info panel doesn't show on left hand
side when a plane is clicked.

Surprisingly flash still works with the original native version.
I use BBC.co.uk/news/10318089 as performance assessment.

From /root/.jwmrc-tray I edited the text file to reduce the
tray height a bit and within the quotes, changed "centre" to "right"
which shifted the tray over to screen right out of the way.
Left length as it was at 800 units.

Regards to all.
