I think there are a lot of websites with flash content.  I don't know
weather this problem with flash exists under windows or not, but it
certainly would contribute to giving users the perception that firefox
is slow under linux.

I would like to be able to leave a web browser window open and then go
off and type an email message and perhaps go off and respond to another
issue when a user calls me, without having to exit from my web browser
because it's chewing up all my CPU so I can't do anything else.

I'm currently working on testing F10 (so far only under vmware), to see
if it is any better.  I did have to install Sun jdk/jre because I
couldn't get Dell DRAC cards to work with openjdk.
