Firefox, Slowest browser on my Mac.

Today I got fed up with Firefox. It was taking forever to open simple html pages off my local drive. I was giving some serious thought to switching browsers. Then I decided to give FF a fair chance. I turned off almost all of the add-ons I have collected. Guess what? Its speedy once again. Kind of a no brainer but I wish I didn’t have to take away the functionality.

All my Firefox add-ons

    I’ll have to try this. Firefox is the slowest browser I have installed. Chrome, Safari and IE are all faster. The only addons I have are:
    Norton IPS (This is probably hurting)
    Norton Toolbar
    Page Speed
