I thought firefox was slow as well. Here is the answer! 1. Backup your Bookmarks (Use MozBackup) 2. Do NOT backup Addons! 3. Make a list of Addons that you have installed. Yes, you must reinstall. 4. If you have Addons like Speed Dial, backup settings. 5. Use IObit Unistall Programs. Uninstall all traces of previous Firefox installations. 6. Install Firefox 8 7. Import Bookmarks with MozBackup restore 8. Re-install plugins 9. PROBLEM SOLVED!!!!

If you have been updating firefox for many versions, chances are there is some corruption that is causing the latest browser to run slow.

What I described above is a fresh install retaining all bookmarks & Addons.

It works!!!

Let me know how it works for you!

Take care all!
