Slow? thats odd I found it to be at least 2x as fast as IE.

How many plugins or extentions do you have on FF?

in the address bar type about : config (no spaces

this brings up FF configuration. You can tweak like mad to make this browser fit you.

If you loading normal webpages, such as MSN or something, than it will load the images last, while it loads text first.
