First off Firefox in F11 is FF 3.5 beta 4.

I have seen you mention this problem before today. And I have not seen
any 'me too' replies. This must be a problem with your setup or system.

Is this with *all* sites? Or just some? Surely not just one site? Give
an example URL please.

Do you have the same extensions installed in both Firefox and Seamonkey?

Do you use Flash Block? If a site is blocked, the default, it can slow
the site down as it fights to display.

Another thing to look at is the 'languages' installed in Firefox by
Fedora. You, I figure, speak English which is built in. Disable the many
other languages.

I have a couple of other ideas but start here.
