Re: All google related sites are REALLY SLOW

Well I can't get lynx to work for me...
Google.com opens fast but any search takes a long time. If I try going to gmail or something, it's really slow.

Does anyone know anything else I could check?

Closing music/video programs leaves sound going

When I close a video (banshee) or music window clicking on the "X", it closes and hides the window playing the sound but the sound never stops unless I find the process and kill it manually. Ideas?

Task Manager bar opens on wrong screen?

Dual screen, twinview one above the other.


How can I get my task bar to open on the top screen when I boot up each time rather than on the bottom screen?

Typically I don't reboot at all but when I do, it's annoying. ;)
