Its listed at mozilla bugs as a common problem, with a series of firefox about:config steps to take - that didn't resolve it.
FF also seems to run slower and slower - another common thread at mozilla forums.
SO ... I tried Minefield - the older 3x version as I liked FF back then - never wanted to move to 4.0, rather had hoped to stay back until FF stabilized a bit.
Minefield seems to run faster - but no flash comes up as "DOWNLOAD PLUGIN" as it is a lighter/faster browser and I assume this was a component - some sort of integration with flash - that wasn't built in.
Do the 4x minefields run faster? Does flash 10 work (if pre-loaded) as it did in firefox, and if not, is there a way to incorporate it so they do.
Thanks in advance.
p.s. Update - tried Minefield 5 - and I'm only 30 minutes in but it does appear quite a bit faster than Firefox 4.0
However - same issue - flash (i.e. youtube) requests a plug in - old Flash10ff does not seem to satisfy the request - am going to try VLC or some other play plug in or pray we get a Flash10 for this ... thank you.
