I haven't been too happy with the latest 64-bit version of Palemoon.  My co-worker suggested that I check out Waterfox.  It's based on the same Firefox source code and you can install add-ons compatible with Firefox.

Keep in mind that you need a 64-bit version of Vista/Win 7.
Download link.

I think it does that because it shares the same profile with Firefox.  At any rate, it seems to be a pretty solid browser.  I installed it last night after I posted and it's been running smoothly for me.  Very fast too.
