I can just say that different processors have different optimisations.
MSXML3 (or 4?) is actually quite optimised in most regards. When going
from VB6 using MSXML4 to .NET (using the .NET version of XSL
transformer), I had to rewrite several templates to use keys. The same
templates where suddenly unbearably slow using for-each and

Therefore, no one can really help you here, I think. You will need to
reqrite and test yourself, untill you come up with a solution that is
fast enough on both browsers. Alternatively, you may be able to
persuade FF to optimise their XSL transformer in this regard.
