I'm still getting hammered by this bug and only one other person has noticed and commented on it so far.

It is rather serious, requiring a browser restart every few hours of usage, and release day is tomorrow.

I'm hoping with more widespread use, this bug will finally get some attention. Good luck everyone!

There's a bug in Firefox 3 that causes all of one's Livemarks (RSS feeds) to want to load up at once, resulting in the browser taking about 4 - 5 minutes to load up:

Anybody who's having this problem needs to vote on this bug, because this type of thing never was a problem in FF 2.0, and it's a pretty embarrassing one to have in Firefox 3. It needs to be fixed.

Issues with Firefox 3 and GMAIL. Firefox 3 causes high CPU utilization when trying to log out of GMAIL. Ends up causing Firefox to quit resonding. Need fix.

I'm having the same problem. I found that opening gmail in an IE tab seems to work. Not the greatest work around but it works.
