    After viewing and saving N jpeg or png images firefox slows to a
    grinding almost halt. All software on the computer becomes very slow.
    Clearing the firefox cache and restarting firefox returns performance
    to normal initially, eventually the system must be rebooted to return
    performance to normal.

    Please do NOT crosspost between groups. Pick one group and ask there

    Note the System requirements for Firefox

    the 'Recommended' OS for Windows is XP
    while it may run on the other OS versions, there may be occassions and
    situations where it doesnt perform well.

    Workarounds, limit your cache.
