Yes, i use portmaster to get all dependencys and when i start in the 
morning and
do something on it (using Firefox + NoScript + Adblock eats much cpu 
time), 2 days
will become real.

Compiling Firefox with portmaster needs round about 4 hours.

Firefox under FreeBSD 10 working good, i get the same speed as under 
Windows XP.
Under FreeBSD 9 it needs more time to load a website.

At work i have an old dualcore from AMD and it needs for xorg 4 or 8 
hours and firefox
in 2 hours.

I doesn't tune my settings because i get later errors, when i updatet 
it. And recompiling doesn't make
fun, when i must wait 1 or more hours to see wether it is working now.
