I'm on XP SP2 and don't find the app particularly slow. What size files
are you working with?
You might want to give the new Fireworks Public Beta a try. One focus
for the beta was to improve overall performance.
You can find the beta at labs.adobe.com

It does it with any file even a new blank one. I can open a new file select another application then move back to Fireworks and wait for it to respond, with Fireworks MX this just doesn't happen?
I'll try the beta but I'm not sure whether I can convince the powers that be to spend another £158 to upgrade so soon after purchasing CS3.
I've installed the beta release of Fireworks CS4 and there is still a delay of several seconds when selecting the application. I guess there is a clash with something that is running on my machine that Fireworks just does not like.
Its only in beta guys calm down
It's not the beta I'm bothered about it's the previous 3 versions that work sooooooo slow on my PC.
I've come to the conclusion it's only my machine anyway, and spent a very productive week using Fireworks MX
what machine are you using?
Dell Dimension 8400
Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3GHz
3.25 GB RAM
Windows XP Pro SP3
More than good enough I'd have thought :(
i apppreciate the advice about beta at labs.adobe.com its being the better for me
