firefox opens very slowly then works fine

Posted

tart Firefox it take almost a minute to start when IE8 and Chrome start in < 5 sec. Once it opens it browses perfectly and as fast as eithre other browser. I uninstalled most add-ons and disabled Java Console as suggested in other threads.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== This recently started and I am not sure what changed

Question owner

I found the issue. I tested outpost firewall, when I uninstalled it windows firewall (for some unknown reasonj) blocked firefox. When I open it and specifically authorized Firefox: normal. I have no idea why it happened but it did.
