I have not noticed that. When I first installed some time ago it I 
thought it seemed slower and perhaps a bit more unstable than the native 
firefox. But the differences were not really significant.
Maybe it has been built with a different compiler or compiler settings.
I do not know. Anyway it is good to get the plugins working.

You may need to check the links to your portinstalled extensions.
New framework for this is in process on if I understand correctly.
