    I need help and I don't know what to do [​IMG] When I load FireFox 3.03 the browser is slow temporary taking up 80-90% of my cpu power. In about 5 minutes the delays are gone and CPU usage is back to normal. Anyone know what this could be?

    Use a stable version of firefox...

    and firefox 3.03 is a beta so it's probably a bug.

    Turn around...
    Backup profiles.ini (it's in App Data, Mozilla\Firefox) and then delete it. Boot Firefox, see if you have the same problem. If it's fixed, it's probably one of your add-ons causing a problem. If it's not fixed, dunno.

    Slow firefox sounds like an oxymoron to me...
