SSD Intel spinning wheel with mac mini ?
Has someone experienced spinning wheel with a SSD Intel postville in a mac mini ?
just upgraded my stock HD to a SSD in the late 2009 mac mini
i've been using it for a week without any problem
but spinning wheel just started to appear today while using Firefox...
is the SSD defective or is it due to Firefox ?

What kind of Mac Mini?
Edit: Yea, sorry. My flu is killing me
Honestly, I stopped using Firefox a while ago due to its memory problems. Unless you have some extensions you can't live without, try running Chrome for a while.

I doubt its Firefox, unless you've like 40 tabs open and you're low on available RAM. You should check to see how much RAM each application is using by using the Activity tool. Currently, my Firefox is using 338MB of RAM while having 10 tabs open (16 threads). I've 2GB of RAM...no beach balls and I also have Mail and Safari open.
Did this happen before the SSD install?

^^ I agree
also when I first got the intel ssd I found I had to reset the pram a couple of times in the first week just to get everything running sweetly.
Dont know why that would have happened but its worth a try as it only takes 2 mins
