The bad syndrome came back. I had a single window, with no extra tabs, entered addons.mozilla.org into the location box. Things started to slow down. I look in the Cache directory under the profile subdirectory, and the urlclassifier3 is chugging along big time. I see the urlclassifier3.sqlite-journal file populate, then flush to the urlclassifier3.sqlite frequently ... that file has grown again to a few MB already. I close that Firefox window, and the process does not quit. Looking at the one or two active threads, again I see all of those sqlite3-mprintf() calls, apparently nested. I wonder what it's chugging? I need to get either a handy viewer to try and peek into the urlclassifier3 db, or else maybe a Places activity viewer for Firefox 3. I want to know what this darned crazy sucker is trying to do, taking over my entire system!!! Larry.
