Ok, Got serious with this problem last night late. I download recordings tru my mythweb thats why it bugs me so.
I ran firfox in save mode (firefox --safe-mode) and had no problem at all downloading. Infact, I was only using something like 15 cpu / 8 mem according to top. So, I went in and uninstalled a bunch of extensions in firefox and it has seemed to fix the problem. Now when I download a large file Im seeing 35 cpu / 8 mem in top for the firefox process.
I dont know which extension was causing the problem though.
Thanks for the reply's
