I'm not sure whether to tag this as a bug or support, but my pc seems to lag excessively when I try to comment on questions or answers.

When I type it takes ages for my text to appear.

Granted that I am using a stone age computer, but this hasn't been a problem before. I'm also not picking this up on stackoverflow.


My pc specs are:


Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20100908 Firefox/3.6.9


Openbox on Archlinux (up-to-date)
1.25 GB RAM


$ cat /proc/cpuinfo
vendor_id       : GenuineIntel
model name      : Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 1.80GHz

    I've seen this at random on all the SE sites, even trilogy ones; do you get it regularly here and never anywhere else? Sep 12 '10 at 16:10
  • @micheal, I'm only active on SO and Unix SE so I can't comment about other SE sites. And I haven't had any problems elsewhere on the web

This was an issue with css styles changing per keystroke as I recall, and is long since fixed.
