    you can try disable your addons and enable it one by one, see if its a problem with a specific addon.

    Nope, I haven't had a single problem with the new Firefox yet - it runs great on all operating systems.

    I've had nothing but trouble with Firefox since installing it on my Mac (I used it on Windows for years). Both version 3 and 3.5 take about 5 minutes to open (usually after crashing 4-5 times). No other program crashes like this. Safari is fine though, fast and has never crashed... Confused.

    Are you running add ons? Have you tried a complete clean reinstall and trashing your profile and starting again?

    Try a clean install of 3.5 and DO NOT install ANY add-ons. Run the browser like that for a while and keep monitoring performance and see how well it runs.
