I would have to advise against Firefox 3.0b3 or later. See the bug below.

You are going to have explain the logic for this one for me to understand.

"Excessive fsync during a kernel compile causes Firefox 3 become
completely unresponsive till the fsyncs are complete. In some cases if
something else i/o intensive is going on Firefox 3 will freeze till the
other i/o has completely finished. If it gets really really bad other
applications start freezing."

You were doing something as intensive as compiling a kernel and Firefox
became "unresponsive" and that is Firefox's fault?

FF2 and FF3 beta 2 don't have a problem, FF3 beta 3 does have a problem. Where would *you* say the regression lies? And since when is a kernel compile "intensive?" Unless run with non-standard make options, it's not intensive at all, particularly disk intensive. I just did a build on an older K7 (Athlon) with 1GB RAM and some six year old slow IDE drives running ata-66 connections. FF2, Konquerer and seamonkey all fine, recent FF3 glacial.
I think there's a serious evil in FF3, other have suggested the latest
release does an order of magnitude more fsync() calls than beta 2.
