I'd like to contribute to 'Problematic extensions' page.

---

Extension:
ImagesLikeOpera (ILO)

Versions affected:
Checked on 0.6.15

Problem:
"Refresh images in tab on tab select" option causes excessive CPU usage on tab change and erratic textbox behavior (i.e. losing caret after selection in google search text box).

Workaround:
Turn off "Refresh images in tab on tab select" option.

---

Behavior is easily confirmed on my computer. Significant tab change delay (with corresponding 100% CPU usage shown by Process Explorer) is seen when switching to tab with google reader.

Alvin777 Thank you for your contribution. Is it possible to get a link to the extension please? We need it to add into the KB article. Thanks again
Edit
Never mind I found it. You had slightly misnamed the extension

What sort of man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.
