I was finding that to be the case (firefox 3 being rubbish) but have
found that disabling the "attack site" and "forgery site" detection in
the security tab in preferences has completely cured all problems with
slow, or miss loading of pages, sudden "greying out" of firefox and the
burst of 5 - 10 mins of constant disk activity about 5 mins into firefox
usage. In fact I have been given permission by the other half ("Don't
know why you have to keep upgrading it was fine before!!") to remove
firefox 2 from the system...yay
