Every now/then I run into latency problems with my CMS (especially) websites.  When I start Firefox it is fine.  Then after a while it starts to slow down, to almost crawl, and I run into severe latency.  

Firefox is somewhat famous for memory leaks. I use an extension to restart it every few hours. Extension just because it uses a shortcut. 

The script tab in firebug is a bit if a hog. I keep it on but if you don't use it much, you should see a difference by turning it off.
