    I'm running WIN XP at work with Firefox and whenever I have .me open my machine seems to slow down the fan is running and the thing is smoking hot. When I close .me the fan goes off and things become more normal. Any ideas, or am i imagining things?

    I haven't really noticed this problem other than on the initial load of .me.com. I don't typically leave it running all day though.

    You should the Task Manager to see if you are running at 100% and which application is causing the problem.

    I am using 10.5.5 with Firefox and I am having this same problem. I have given up on MobileMe and just waiting until my subscription expires.

    The Google Apps I use are free and they are always working.

    I had a problem with mobileme killing my macbook pro. it turns out that when i set my proxy servers at work, that setting transferred to my "home" network location. mobileme apparently can't handle something about the proxy servers, as it would work if I manually synced by not if it tried to automatically sync. I haven't been able to keep the two separate, so the proxies are enabled at work, but not at home, so I just use Firefox which has it's own setup.

    I'm not sure if that has anything to do with your firefox issue, though.

    I used to curse MobileMe 2 or 3 times a day, but now Apple's improved it significantly to the point that I only curse it slightly less than once a week. Once I figured out the proxy issue and re-installed Leopard to repair all my broken preferences, I can finally say "it just (mostly) works".
