Windows 7: Browser Issues

Browser Issues

I'm using Firefox 4 BETA 6 and it is EXTREMELY unstable on my laptop. When I first installed it, it ran great, but now it runs like garbage. It takes several minutes to start up, and when it finally does, it often does not respond and then crashes. MSE has not detected anything wrong and I have no extensions installed. The latest stable release runs like this as well.

Since it's beta, you should report your problems to the developers in case others are experiencing the same problem.

Lemur, he also said "The latest stable release runs like this as well", so it's not just the Beta release that has the problem.

How does it behave if you boot to Start / Programs / Mozilla Firefox / Firefox (Safe Mode)?
