    I use FF 3.5.2. I use an unibody macbook 2GB with 4GB.

    My firefox acts weird most of the time I don't know. When I scroll down pages it will freeze for 3-4 seconds then continue scrolling.

    As I was typing this... it froze for 2-3 seconds after I typed "most of the time" then it was normal.

    Any clue?

    I also don't know where to back up my saved passwords so I can do a reinstall? But I thought it was the problem with "Smooth scrolling" (damn it, froze after 'scro' again for 2-3 seconds then continued. It doesn't happen with Safari though.

    I have had that happen but not since going to a mac. install xmarks add-on and you can create an account and backup your bookmarks and passwords. this really makes it easy to get firefox going again.

    I compared FF's font to Safari's and it blows. Safari's font size are weird looking. I don't know.

    Even though I am using Safari to post this. FF is pissing me off.

    a clean install may fix it. sometimes firefox gets wacky with a lot of updates.

    Is there any path where I have to go and save my bookmarks along with passwords?

    I use 1Password so those are safe. Just the ones under FF.

    Safari used OS X's font rendering so you may as well say all the fonts in OS X blow and only Firefox's are good :rolleyes:. and as Safari is Apple software and the included browser it integrates with OS X very well; Mail, Spotlight, services, spelling and grammar, dictionary etc.

    I just uninstalled Flashblock addon. I thought it was causing it. It's not freezing anymore after uninstalling that addon.

    Let me see how this goes or else I'll install xmarks and back it up.
