Build Identifier: 3.6

When attempting to simply use email in Google, 3.6 on a Mac, it clunks along.  It's the worst performance by Firefox I've ever seen.  I've never been 'hung out to dry' (not able to connect) when attempting to send emails, trash them, do searches, etc.  I refuse to change my Google email to http only, rather than the https which should be an unquestionable standard.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Log in to Google using a Mac operating Firefox 3.6
2.  Check your email
3. Attempt to reply, trash, forward, etc. email
Actual Results:  
Gmail sends an error message that it's attempting to contact the server, with the ever-tempting (and never works) Try now ... in 4s, 3s, etc.

Expected Results:  
Usual email experience, send, receive, forward, trash, etc.

It should have like Gmail has always worked in Firefox: send, forward, trash, etc. emails with no problems whatsoever.  3.6 has a http / https bug that is badly in need of a fix, aside from the most recent hacker vulnerability exposed.
