How do I make Firefox launch automatically when I turn on my computer? At the moment it takes ages to start and I'd like to get going as soon as I turn on the machine. I am using Windows 10. Thanks in advance.

hi MontgomeryS, like prior versions of windows win10 has an autostart folder in the startmenu where you could place program shortcuts - those will be launched as soon as you sign into your account.

press the windows-key + R and open %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup - then the right folder will open up. you can then right-click the firefox icon on your desktop, copy it and then paste it into this startup folder.
