    Make sure everything is up to date. I would try rebooting your computer, and/repairing your permissions using disk utility.

    I also heard uninstalling flash speeds things up too.

    I would also suggest installing the plugin click2flash on Safari (not sure if it's available for firefox).

    It has made a world of difference since I installed it.
