Firefox - slow saving of files?

Just wondering, of all the other people that use Firefox, do you have any issues when saving pictures to the HD en masse? After a few save target as, all windows of Firefox grind to a halt and I have to wait a while (sometimes a minute or two) until it's ready to work again. It's kinda annoying to say the least.

Yea, I actually thought it was a windows problem but maybe not, for me it happens with everything I'm downloading, but i only have to wait 3-10 seconds not minutes, its still frustrating though.

What extensions do you have, maybe theres a conflict there?

I'll downlong the latest one and try it out.

I'm sure it's firefox, IE doesn't do it, but I get sick of having millions of windows open.

Re: Firefox - slow saving of files?

No problems like that here, Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 2, Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

Although it does get a little sluggish after a few hours if I've had lots (more then about 10) of tabs open, close Firefox and re-start it and it's back to being a rocket compared to IE for me again...
