RE: Pbuffer error

The alt-tabbing works fine for Pidgin, but what I have noticed is a pretty consistent conflict with Firefox.
Last night I had the game running wihout Firefox and it went pretty much flawlessly for hours while chatting out of game pretty heavily, but when I had Firefox running I couldn't tab-out without it starting to buckle and lag, eventually stalling entirely.
The tough part is that ParagonWiki is so damn useful sometimes. ;-)
Contact pictures are fine if you have the time to wait, but my lvl 31 takes upwards of ten minutes, I can only imagine how long it would take an upper-level player (that being said, it is also a CoH design flaw to have all contacts stay in your tab for the duration of the game - why would I go back to my lvl 1 contact at level 50?). Still, the game play better than on Cedega, despite the issues.
