    Problem with Firefox ever since I bought my new macbook pro 2011 "13" Every time I pull up a video on firefox my computer sounds like a blowdryer. Every time I pull up safari just fine. Anybody have any fixes. Seems Like there are to many resources running on the firefox browser-memory ?

    HD Flash? That's going to happen until Adobe enable hardware decoding for it (and no one really knows how long that will be, if ever).

    My MBP is fine playing HD videos on firefox.
    Even on safari it eats up a gig just for having the app out so :p
    2 gigs+ if you watch video.
    If i use firefox, the fan will kick up to 3000rpm in no time.
    Your not the only one buddy haha
