    Hi Im a windows user for almost 10 years now and a firefox user since it was released. Just purchased an ibook last week and installed firefox 2 for browsing (since im in love with this browser) i have observed that it performs slow when scrolling down and openning tabs. Is there anything i should tweak or something? by the way my spects are ibook 1.2 and 512 DDR. I think this is more than enough in browsing pages smoothly

    Thanks for the work around. Bon echo did the trick! scrolling was smoother and faster. Tab browsing is more efficient. Question, can i change the icon on the dock to the regular firefox icon?
