I see, you have a load of plugins running in FF and are surprised it's not really up to scratch? Try running a vanilla version (without plugins).


Actually, that's pretty much the whole list. I find they don't make it particularly unresponsive compared to a vanilla install (it's measurable, yes, but only to non-human intelligencies to whom fractions of a second make a different - it's as irrelevant as the 128 vs 192kbps MP3 debate to somebody whose ears operate at a naturally low bitrate). I've tested it both ways. The real difference lies in the core of Firefox itself between 3.0 and 3.5. Besides, I'd rather have a fractional difference in response times due to extensions, and no adverts/popups/spam/viruses/XSS, thankyouverymuch.

I was merely trying to see if there was any difference, sometimes a bad plugin can kill your performance. As in: trying to be helpful.

Help noted and appreciated, but it's definitely an issue with the 3.5.x branch itself - as many others have noted on blogs and in reviews. I'm not sure where Mozilla are headed with this, which is a shame. For a while there, FF was the clear winner in the field. I hope they don't get carried away with bloat.
