If this is a brand new profile (a few days old at the most), it could be the urlclassifier2.sqlite file (spyware/malware database) that is being downloaded. If I remember correctly, it starts 30 minutes after you start the application. The whole database is currently 55 MB large, but it should be downloaded in a few days, and then the download will stop. Your symptoms look like Firefox 3.0 beta 5, but the current release candidate is supposed to be a lot better.
I am running Firefox 3.0rc1
do you see this problem with current 3.0 release and 3.1 beta? http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-beta.html
Sorry, I had forgotten about this bug and it doesn't seem to happen any more. I can't be sure, which version it was fixed in but I haven't seen it for quite a long time, I am only using 3.0 and haven't used the 3.1 beta yet.
