help. im typing this from my iphone because somethings wrong with my macbookso forgive the poor spelling. my mac slows down to a crawl when i use the chinese pinyin and/or when using firefox. everything slows down to a crawl. the drop down menus, the finder, even the force quit window. i think the problem accures when i open firefox with chinese typing language on. ive had to force shutdown my 3 yr old white macbook and just after a restart my mac turned on with a loading bar (not hibernation) and now after a speedy login my finder and desktop is lagging. no icons on the desktp yet but the menu bar icons are up
can anyonehelp me?

edit:
macbook white
4gb ram
2.1 ghz

i tried relaunching finder from doCk but nothings happening. dock froze. first time ive seen this.
im scared of messing with it again because i have a important script and a chinese work on the comp that i nees tmr and i dont want to aggravate the situation.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
