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

Thanks to you all Mike, Greg, Pat and Chuck. I've been on the road. I'll follow up on your suggestions tomorrow night sometime and report back.

I'm using Firefox 3.1B3 on Fedora 11, x86_64 and love it. I travel quite

not had a single Firefox issue regardless of where I connect to the net.
My only problem (and perhaps I'm not doing something right) is that I
can't get Flash to work on x86_64 and this is more and more of a thorn
in my side as my friends ask me to look at this or that posting on YouTube.

For 64bit flash (it's still beta but works pretty good)..

1 - http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html
2- Scroll to the very bottom and look for the link with "Download 64-bit
Plugin for Linux" and click on it to download the .so
3 - untar it, and copy the libflash.so (not sure of correct name) to
your /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/ dir.
4- Start firefox and should be all set.
