Firefox 3.5 hanging? slow? buggy?

Like many other users I recently had slow-down problems using the new firefox 3.5.x. Seems like the Skype Plugin was causing the issues. Disabling it worked for me. There is an interesting thread on the issue. Skype apparently is having problems making reasonable quality plugins for quite some time. Mozilla was aware of it but due to political reasons did not block the knowing troublesome plugin in the new version.

This feels really strange for such a company to piss off users just to please some exec’s at skype / ebay.
