I know this isn't really on topic but , has anyone else had this problem with firefox ? When I tried it the program immediatley started using around 90 to 95% of my cpu , for reference I'm using XP Home edition with 512 meg of ram , 80 gig HD , PC 2700 memory and a 2.3 gigahertz processor .
kosh, i have the same problem. Firefox takes alot of resources esp during startup, and it requires ALOT of memory too - more than IE, although the reason is probably becoz i am using themes and i have several add-on extensions.
with each update, FFx requires more memory. quite often it hangs during startup.
