My experience with Ff is that it does not slow down my system (which is by no means new and top of the line)and speeds up my surfing (not to mention that it is a safer browser and has been tailored to my own specific needs). I am curious WHY you think it is slowing down your system and how much RAM your computer has.
It may be that, also and from a different perspective, that you are using Ff at the same time you have other applications running, or have 20 tabs all open at once; both of these can cause some sluggishness, and both can be avoided by closing unneeded apps and tabs as a matter of habit.
Regards,
John
