"We need your help to improve Mozilla's performance.

  • We need help identifying more tasks that seem slow.
  • We need help generating data that demonstrates Mozilla's performance, especially in comparison with other browsers.
  • We need help generating profiling data.

If you want to help, please read these instructions to see what you should put in a performance bug report, and for how to use jprof, the freely available profiling tool for Mozilla that runs on RedHat 6.1. If you can already build Mozilla on RedHat 6.1, you can generate profiling data.

If you have Quantify, check out these instructions for installing, building, and running with Quantify. These tips may also be helpful to you.

If you are on MacOS, get the Mac Instrumentation SDK, and read these tips for profiling Mozilla on MacOS.

If your favorite performance problem isn't on the list of known performance problems, please let us know."

It sounds like you've got the NECKO.DLL crash. If this is the case, please visit bug <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=23709> If you can add anything to that report such as your system configuration and internet connection info it will probably help them get to the heart of the problem faster. Right now several people are experiencing this crasher but they are still having difficulty figuring out exactly what's causing it. Please visit that bug, see if it looks like your problem, add comments to it, and if you've got votes left add votes to the bug.

Thanks,
