I have a dual Op with 4GB RAM and 64-bit firefox. As my memory gets
chewed up, firefox performance degrades. 3.0.5 seems better than prior
3.0.x version but it still will crash and vanish thanks to crappy
_javascript_ all over the place. I also run the adobe testing version of
flash for 64-bit Linux. It _mostly_ works but I have seen it tear down
firefox to a bit heap of weeping page faults.

Wow, again, the community comes with the MANsers!  I'll post my specs when I get in, but I'm shocked to see that Mozilla doesn't have much love for our market.  I assumed that since it was FOSS that it would give more love to Linux, but I guess Windows has more pull than I thought.  That's what I get for ASSuming things.  Reid, I look forward to "nightly" adventures... so I'll look into the latest beta build too.

Oh and to confirm, it probably is my nVidia car.  Ever since I've been running this system and learning about Linux (9+ months), there has ALWAYS been a common denominator... and that's my graphics card (nVidia GeForce 8600 GT).  If I didn't need 3D support A LOT of my issues would have gone away.  Amazing how troublesome this awesome little graphics card has become to FOSS users.
