    Default Firefox Slow, Fans Speed Up

    I've noticed recently that sometimes if I have over 10 tabs open in Firefox my fans speed up to 5000RPM. I check Activity Monitor and CPU for Firefox is at 100%. Even if I close all tabs except for one, fans will run high and CPU will remain 100% until I close Firefox. Besides this, opening the Application folder is pretty slow, takes 10 seconds to display. I've done repair disk permissions, but perhaps I should try Techtool Pro as well. Anyone else have any suggestions?

    Thanks!
    Alexander

    Was there any physical damage to the hard drive (i.e. dropped?)? or else it's probably bad memory...

    Not that I know. I might run Techtool Pro to find out if my memory is OK.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and performance seems more speedy. We'll see if I get that fan problem again, time will tell...

    Thanks!

    Firefox is notorious for being CPU heavy. You might like to try out Safari or Camino (or Chrome when it comes out).
