7 Most certainly, this is a memory issue. For every tab you have open, Firefox
8 keeps a 30-something pages history cache in memory, including pictures, for
9 quicker "back-browsing". If you are under tight memory (<512MB, I'd say), you
10 quickly notice that the memory requirements of Firefox make the computer
11 start to swap, and that the system slows down considerably.
13 You can turn off this history-caching somewhere, someplace on about:config,
14 but I wouldn't know where. Search the net. You're not the first one to
15 complain about this.
