I have as a second PC, a MiniCompaq netbook that functions nicely. I get 14mb from the router. I have been noticing that Firefox is getting slow. I have already performed all the settings in about:config and I disregarded a paid a square antivisus that clearly makes Firefox slow. But I still feel it slower than at beginning. I uninstalled every complement also. I will thanks very much a new advice for this problem. Friendly cheers

Sorry I am sick. It's MiniCompaq XP Home Intel Atom. 1.6; 1M RAM. The mini functions pretty well and every saturday receives, cleaning, scanning, defrag, etc. One sole user. I think that Firefox has improved a lot since I have to quit a square and install just free Avira (that's excellent). But it's still slow for my perception. Friendly cheers and thanks for the patience and interest.

Well firefox does get to the point where it is slow on my machine and it appears to happen when you have it opened for a long time. It also likes to eat up RAM. So I recommend that you close it periodically and reopen it.
