Since updating to Firefox 8 (Firefox 7 on 10.7.2 worked without issues) I can no longer shut down Firefox cleanly.

Firefox must be shut down by using the Force Quit option.

I have also noticed increased hard disk read/write access since upgrading to Firefox 8 and switching between tabs is noticeably slower.

Chosen solution

Whenever I've had issues with FF after an update, it is normally an Add-On that is not playing nice.

My most recent problem was Firefox not responding right at launch.

I created a new profile and it worked right away.
