trouble with Firefox 4 beta

Hi,
I am having a lot of trouble with Mozilla Firefox 4 beta.
When I click on the desktop icon, I have to wait for a couple of minutes before a popup (SCRIPT) comes up. I then click continue and after a while, another popup comes up (SCRIPT2).
I press ok on this one and wait. After this - IF Firefox starts - it's fine but most of the time it doesn't start. It has also had a history of constantly crashing before this latest version.
Also, I get a message at the bottom of the toolbar that says,'Firefox is not able to show the tool bar. Please re-install the toolbar". When I click on this, nothing happens.
Another thing, is that FF is exactly half of the IE download speed.
How can I resolve this please.
Regards,
Pete

Don't use beta software if you want the app to work properly, simple as that.
By definition, beta software is unfinished & 'buggy'. Bugs in Firefox beta versions should be reported to Mozilla, not to us.

Well that's a useful reply!!
The version I am using now is the RC version.
As far as I am concerned, this is some kind of virus acting on it - not a Firefox bug.
