Ok I noticed that the Firefox updates have been coming quite rapidly and that the latest version is Beat. I understand Beta versions will have bugs and kinks that need to be worked out. My Problem is websites load slow as crap or don't load all together. And getting on Facebook? Forget that! Facebook has enough issues without throwing a slow Browser in the mix. My question is this. Does Firefox 7 Beta have some issues with responsiveness and speed? I noticed alot of people having the same issue as far as browsing speed. And before anyone suggests clearing history and cache. I have already done that several times. I have even checked my computer for viruses and anything else that might cause a problem like that. Add-ons and any extra toolbars are either removed or disabled and certain sites will still not load properly. Any extra information or advice would be very much appreciated! Thank you! A Loyal Firefox user.

Firefox 7 does have some known issues causing hangs or freezes

The developers appear to have realised that this sort of thing should not happen or slip past testing, they are I understand, working on a method of automatically reporting these hangs as a matter of urgency (Bug429592).

Please also note it is best not to download firefox from third party sites, it does sometimes result in inconveniences like unexpected add-ons, and also note that Firefox 3.6 is the version that should be used if you need an earlier version of firefox, it is still supported and secure. Versions 4, 5 and 6 may put your system or personal data at risk.

don't bother because if you use that version it is just as slow. Maybe if you uninstall 7 yourself and then reinstall 5 it might work better. I never did an uninstall of 7 before I applied 5. None of it seems to work faster. Hate FF right now. Using IE9 and it is much faster.
