Firefox 3.0 too slow for my desktop pc or is it just me?

This is the first day that I have the mood to blog since Eidul Fitr (Hari Raya).

What really caught my attention since the last few days I was away-from-keyboard is the startup time of Mozilla Firefox 3.0 browser on my 7 years old pc (Pentium 4 1.8 GHz) running Ubuntu 7.10, it was noticeably slow, giving me the impression it’s bloated. Was it only me? or does anybody else notice it too?

Currently I use Epiphany to write this post…

  1. Have you checked the auto update on the firefox? It updates in the background w/o letting you know until it is done. I have noticed that this slows it down considerably.

  2. I had the same problem, there is an option about zoom disabled by default: zoom text only (My firefox is in spanish, so I dont know actually how is named this option in English…
