Hopefully, I'm not imagining things, but I have an impression, that the latest 3.6.9 version seems to:
- load slower
- browsing is slower
- RAM usage grows faster with time

It's nothing dramatic, but since I use FF every day for number of hours, I think I'm on to something.
Especially RAM usage.

There were no recent changes to my computer and no new add-ons (actually, I disabled couple of them).

I have a lot of add-ons, so I expect high RAM usage, but here is an example.
If I'm on a computer a whole day, I used to restart FF once a day, due to getting slow (high RAM usage).
Right now, I seem to have restart at least twice a day.

Anyone with similar experience?

FireFox for awhile has been getting "sluggish" when compared to browsers such as Google Chrome and Opera. Or atleast in my opinion.

But to answer; no I haven't noticed 3.6.9 anymore "sluggish" than 3.6.8.
