[PC-BSD Testing] FF3.5.2 runs slower on PCBSD than Windows?

That is correct. My understanding is that almost all apps only run on a single core, but the OS will assign different
apps to diff cores depending upon workload. A few of the games we have support SMP, which enables them
to run on two cores at once, but I don't think firefox includes this ability. Maybe there is a SMP
version floating around somewhere, but i've not run across it yet.
