I might switch to something else anyway though as I do find it too bloated.

it could be that the download history has become huge. check the Options > Privacy tab > see if the "remember downloaded files" is ticked: if it is, uncheck it, then empty the cache, personal data, history etc (same tab: check settings before to do so you can keep forms and passwords)
does this help any?
