    Haven't noticed a different.

    I only have 1 problem with Firefox.

    When I just booted my PC up and I start FireFox for the first time, it will take from 30-60
    seconds to open up Anyone know why?

    What addons do you have?

    Maybe we both have same add on, and if so maybe that could be cause of slowness.

    I have Download Helper

    Cooliris

    AVG Safe Search

    and Skype Extension

    Default

    FoxyTunes
    New Tab Button On Tab Right
    British English Dictionary ()
    Aquatint Black Gloss

    Then I have Java Quick Starter, but that wasn't added by me, so didn't count it. Also have quite a few themes and other thingys that aren't activated.
    I think that is AVG Safe Search aswell, but I always go to Google anyway, and it scans the results?

    I have Download Helper
    Download Helper really slows it down first time opening it, I had problems with it when I had it.
