4gig installed, 2.0 free + 1.3 caches. Intel 6700 core 2 duo 2.66 ghz

I'm a running 32bit because my previous 10.x instal was 64bit. At the time 
many apps were not available for 64. Didn't want to risk the same thing again 
and no time to check.

Me thinks that power save may have something to do with the firefox aspect but 
as far as I am aware I have disabled it at the kde level.
