Firefox..

Anyone notice that Firefox runs, well, how can I say this, "weird" on Win7? Sort-of, slow, dunno how to describe it. Actions delayed. Not as snappy as on Vista, for example.

Thoughts?

Do a search for firefox tweaks in google and here at SF. there are tons of things to speed up FF. Some are about config: Most work best on 3.5.2

Good Luck and let me know if you need help
