Re: any thoughts on why firefox is still nad-grindingly slow?

  with seamonkey, scrolling is

  *scroll* *scroll* *scroll* ...

with firefox, it's

  *scroll*  wait wait wait *scroll* wait wait wait *scroll* ...

i can't be the only person seeing this, and i can't be the only person
who's pretty much given up on this dog of a piece of software.
thoughts?

I will say that even with +130 tabs open on my old over loaded machine, FF works well. Much better with NoScript thought. I say over loaded because the loads are usually in the 1.7 to 2.5 range.

I suspect that you have a configuration file corruption issue.

Try creating a new account and see how it works.

Try running FF from the command line and see if there are any messages.
