I was long a huge Firefox advocate and user, but with the most recent versions, memory leakage and flat-out resource usage has made using it almost impossible for any length of time before a reboot is required on my computers. I use Chrome now 95% of the time as it is faster, though I use FF when I want to use the fine extensions provided and which did spoil me.
I have installed, reinstalled, and have the same issue on multiple computers, but I understand here that others do not have such issues. I guess my top-of-the-line workstations might be the issue...
Too bad, I hope FF4 fixes the issue--especially the memory leakage issue which I have noted for years, and which may be the fault of one or more add-ons, though I have disabled/enabled those as well to no avail.
Everything was fine before FF 3.6 for me (again, apart from the memory leakage, which made FF easily consume more than a gig of memory and made keystrokes move at a snail's pace after a few hours of intense usage).
