Default Re: Native Firefox performance vs Firefox in VirtualBox

It's likely a disk caching issue. The way virtualized OS's write to disk is far different than how it's done natively. Firefox likes to write to disk for caching quite a bit - these writes are actually going to be in memory longer within a VM.
