    4.0.4 on 10.6.2, though it seemed to work fine before that. I haven't had time to update to 4.0.5 yet so I can't talk about it. My history's pretty long.



    This has to be a somewhat isolated problem as most people don't seem to be experiencing it. I just checked my wife's machine, and it's fine there as well.

    Amen brother.



    It's dog slow compared to Safari even with only a couple of extensions loaded.

    I ll try clearing the cache or something then, I think history is bogging it down but I could be way wrong...

    nkhm: My first post here, but... Was browsing to see comparisions betw S 4.0.5 and FF 3.6.3 (to see about switching to S). In your reply, you implied there is an equivalent to FF's MorningCoffee. May I ask, what is it? I have several add-ins in FF installed, am looking to (perhaps) switch. Thank you for your reply. I could list my FF add-ins, but being a nb, don't want to do so (yet).
