    Sluggish Firefox

    I recently updated to Firefox 3.0.4 and it has slowed down a lot.
    When I move the pointer over any link, it takes about 10 seconds to change to the hand symbol and it takes about 5 seconds for a character that I type to appear on the screen.
    It's pretty weird that I am beginning to feel faster than my computer.
    Is it just me or anybody else experiencing this lately?
    The problem was in one of the addons Fasterfox.Unchecked prefetching,problem solved.
