Debian Annoyance

I just installed Linux kernel 2.6.30 onto my sidux OS today. For some reason, Debian's version of Iceweasel was using 100% of my CPU making the web browser very slow. So slow in fact that I had to wait several seconds at a time to edit mistakes and such in today's blog postings. I downloaded a Linux version of Firefox and it doesn't use but 1-6% of my CPU. The performance difference is amazing. I wonder what the issue is with Iceweasel? It is essentially the same source code with the Mozilla graphics stripped out.
