After updating to 10.6.6, I've had the spinning beachball every 10 seconds in Firefox. It's aggravating because it's occurring so often. This did not happen before the update.
I've tried emptying cache and cookies before quitting firefox, but it's not helping.
Could it be a virus? My friend had a virus on her computer and the virus sent me an email. Since it looked like it was from my friend, I went ahead and opened it.
Any suggestions or tips? Firefox has become unusable.
I would not think it is a virus on your Mac.
It may sound like a long shot, but simple enough to do a Safe Boot. Then Reboot as normal.
Among other things a Safe Boot deletes the dynamic loader shared cache.
See if this helps.
