Noticed my computer acting pokey, so I checked my mem usage and THIS is what I discovered

It's a clean install of FF 3.6, only add-ons are Flash and Shockwave, and currently, it sits on Google...any ideas why its using this much of my resources?

System reboot, no, but re-install of FF, yes, restarting FF just brings me back to all the resource usage, not immediately but it always happens

@444k as I type this

FF(3.5) doing this was the reason I went Chrome in the first place. I figured anything was better for my resources. But Chrome started acting up so I went for a clean install of FF 3.6...and it acts up...I don't know what to do?

No luck with add-ons either...this is driving me crazy!!!!!!

Edit-I'm giving up on FF, and trying to replace Chrome, any suggestions for a new web browser?

I pushed Firefox to 1.8GB on my netbook that had 2Gb granted I did it on purpose but its still not hard to make Firefox go really high on RAM usage. The way around it is to just restart the program periodically and the RAM usage drops a lot. And unless Safari has gone through vast improvements like Chrome did, then its like all Apple products, it looks great but it really sucks.
