Is this about reopening tabs on startup or are you opening all bookmarks in a folder (Open all in tabs) ?

There are 'on_demand' prefs for normal and for pinned tabs to prevent Firefox from opening all tabs at once on startup to speed up starting the Firefox application.

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

Set Firefox to never remember history. That's the closest I could find to your answer. Now seems as fast as was before- Thanks!
