Don't know if this would help Rob with his FF problems, but I finally
forced my FF install to use multiprocess support, and it has made an
immense difference in performance and stability in my case.

Mozilla appears to have been ultraconservative in automatically activating
multiprocess to the masses; from my reading, this was a massive undertaking.

I recommend installing the "Add-on Compatibility Reporter" add-on before
enabling multiprocess; this indicates which of your other add-ons are
compatible (or not) with multiprocess. I found out last week that the last
of my add-ons that wasn't compatible, is now, and I made the jump, and I
couldn't be happier. Also, be sure to backup your FF profile before
enabling.

(FWIW, I stick with Firefox solely because I can't live without the Tab Mix
Plus add-on.)
