I saw this for the first time in Gmail today:

Firebug makes Gmail slow

Sure enough, I disabled it and now Gmail is faster than ever.

Odd - do you have the 'new' Gmail 2.0? I don't see that in my Gmail and I have Firebug running but I don't think my account has been updated yet.

Pretty sure this only display in the version 2.0 of Gmail as one of the new features is message pre fetching. At a guess that much pre fetching slows Firefox down whilst Firebug logs them all.

Ah yes, I must have the new version because I have a link at the top that says "Older Version"

Everybody please stop saying "Gmail 2.0". It sounds even more stupid than "Web 2.0". AFAIK the only version number Gmail has ever had (will ever have?) is "beta". Fake version numbers help nobody. Also it's just the UI that changed, so why not say Gmail UI 2, which is consistent with what they seem to call it (URL parameter ui=2).
