firefox, does it take more resources to run?

Keith S

Is it just me, or does firefox eat resources like candy?
When I open firefox and load a page, my hard drive starts rattling and the firefox page continuously refreshes, so I can't navigate or read any of it.
Plus, after I close the firefox window, the computer just seems to hang for about a minute (literally 60 seconds) or longer and eventually, the hard drive stops rattlinga nd the computer  starts to respond to keyboard inputs again.
