Robert,

I have two or three machines (x86_64) have some problems with firefox.  On some of them it froze the machine and nothing but a hard reboot got them back (ATI integrated graphics, I to complained too, check the list as well).  On those mchines, I use either konqueror or Opera to avoid the freezes and all is well.  On the regular i686/i586 firefox works well.  The nvidia x86_64 firefox works ok, but I have not run it continously to say how well it works).  I only have gecko-mediaplayer and flash plugins (x86_64 beta).  I was not complaining that it was slow, I complainted because it froze my machines.  You are not the only one that is having problems or has problems with firefox, but we can only do so much.  

Regards,

Antonio
