Although I cant help you,I have to tell you that exactly the same thing has happened to me.I downloaded it a few weeks ago and I can only use it for short periods for the same reasons as you.Such a shame as its a good browser.I have no add-ons or extensions,so it cant be that.The Firefox forums have not been all that helpful either.Will continue to check this thread,hopefully someone will come up with something.

Have you tried system restore ? back to before. the problem started. Or uninstall then reinstall Firefox.
hope this helps.

Ive installed firefox v.2 on my new build & its a lot slower than version 1 on my old machine which is much punier. Putting Version 1 on there may do the trick if its still downloadable (but may not be as secure) this is what Im going to try.
