    For some reason firefox is cauesing system wide lag unless i reboot every 2-3 hours. before maverics i had to reboot every 2-3 days to completly exterminate lag.

    i run 40-50 tabs on firefox at a time and close 100-200 every 2 hours. so before i attributed that to that slowing down the system and a quick reboot solved all lag whigh was minimal utill about 5 days where it became system effects lagging.

    anyone else haveing this problem? should i use whetever firefox beta build is called i think nightly or aurora)

    I'm running Firefox 23 on Mavericks for several hours a day due to work, right alongside Safari and do not see this issue.

    How much RAM do you have in your Mac? How much is being used by Firefox?

    I'm on Firefox 24 and haven't seen any problems under Mavericks, but then again I only ever have a few tabs open at a time. You could try creating a new profile in Firefox (with no add-ons) and see if the problem still occurs. If it doesn't, add back your add-ons one by one. If you still don't see the problem, then most likely your original profile is corrupted.
