I need to wait a lot in writing messages to SO because my keyboard's Key Repeat Rate gets very slow in Firefox.

I have the following settings in OS X

enter image description here

I have noticed that some process is continuously ON and then OFF, and so on. If I type in SO's question box, the process starts. It does not start when I write to the title -box.

The process seems to be related to SO's javascript.

How can you find the process which slows me down?

I use OS X Leopard, Firefox 3.5.

Workaround for now Type up you question somewhere else, then paste it into SO. – jjnguy Jul 13 '09 at 23:37
@jinguy: I would like to have a similar editor as in SO for offline writing such that I can see what is going on when I am writing. --- Do you know how you can have such an editor? – Masi Jul 14 '09 at 8:31

I would try to duplicate this in Google Chrome, or Safari, first. Could be rogue extensions in Firefox.

I use only Adblock Plus, Firebug and Tree Style Tab. --- I have not seen the same problem in Safari nor Opera yet. – Masi Jul 14 '09 at 18:24
