Windows 7: Firefox and Waterfox!

only current problem i have with ff is that when you go on google sometimes it hangs when it brings up the searches that google recommends and says not responding for a bit then response again. Something with the update messed it up for me :| been happening for quiet a while and got a bit annoying.

Dear Heyyou,
How many add-ons do you have installed? The more the add-ons, the slower the startup of FF!

Dear MIGU31,
That's one of the reasons for my OP!

I have 8 add ons. Waterfox loads cold in about 8 seconds, which is about the same as Chrome and IE9. FF would take 8 to 16 seconds. Not a problem really. On my 32x XP computer, FF took up to 22 seconds, and the add ons weren't the problem. That's just the way it was.
