Ticket #4765 (closed defect: fixed)
browsing https web pages is extremely slow on a windows guest in a Ubuntu host
|Reported by:||FangQ||Owned by:|
I installed a windows xp guest OS in a Ubuntu 9.04 host. Everything else was fast and smooth, except that when I browse a secure web server with https:// URLs. The virtualbox window will freeze for a few seconds, the host computer CPU jumps up to 100% (with 1 CPU). Browsing any non-ssl http links are very smooth, even pages with many data.
This happens for firefox 3.5 and safari.0.2, but less severer on IE. My virtualbox version is 3.0.4.
as an example, you may browse https://orbit.nmr.mgh.harvard.edu/ . I checked the log file, nothing special.
