I have been using Firefox 3.0.3 on my macbook, and lately i have noticed that it causes my laptop to heat up significantly, reaching temps of 60 C and fan speeds of 5000rpm. And this causes the battery to be chewed through at a rate far less than ideal. This was never a problem for me with FF 2 so has any one else had this problem?
