    Firefox is now taking about a minute to fully load the page complete with pictures. I am using a high speed internet connection and it used to take a matter of seconds. Now I am getting very frustrated with Firefox and am thinking of using IE 7 again. Can anyone help me with my problem?

    Thanks for all your help!

    FF has been very slow for me, too, for the last couple of updates. It's too frustrating to use. Avant works well and must be at least 10x faster :D.

    But it isn't just FF. My SeaMonkey (Mozilla-based) is slow as molasses, too. But K-Meleon seems fine.

    The trouble seemed to begin when they tried to patch all the security holes. They had some partial success with that, but speed was the victim of it. I don't use it much any more.

    No problems With Firefox 2.0.0.9 at all. Works fine. Always does.

    Thanks for the idea!

    I will report later to see if it is faster or not.

    You might try running in Firefox Safe Mode. Could be an add-on slowing it down. It took about a second to load a page at TSG. That's running 2.0.0.9 without Fasterfox.
