    Firefox running slow on Tiger
    Anyone else experiencing painful slowness with FF on Tiger? It times out when i try to get extensions or themes, and some sites won't even load. Safari is VERY slow as well.

    Specs:
    iMac C2D 24" and MB C2D
    firefox wasn't really running slow for me, but safari is so much quicker than FF on Tiger for me that I decided to switch back to Safari.

    lot's of folks on the apple discussion boards are complaining of the same issues i'm having, but apple is stonewalling. everything worked fine until i upgraded to tiger. i'm thinking about rollling back until they release a .1 or .2.

    A friend of mine, who just u/g'd to Tiger thinks that IE5 runs the best now. He used to use Safari but it did get slower post-upgrade

    I hate safari. It never worked for me. Internet explorer dosen't run java right. Firefox is like heaven. If it dosent work on tiger I might just stick to panther for a while.

    Have you tried Shiira (http://hmdt-web.net/shiira/index-e.html) or Camino (http://caminobrowser.org)?
