    Do you mean for loading?

    Firefox uses lots of ram so does vista, now do you wonder why? :D

    I've noticed that Firefox is slow on any system. I think MS must have some code in there to make FF a low priority when loading.

    The link I posted to above can help the loading speed it up. FF is ram heavy for it's first load after a pc has been booted. Using the script in the about config you can decrease this ram usage and speed up the load time
