after the last upgrade to 9.0.1 the browser is very slow to open web pages when it starts (and I think slower generally). Also, the icons for each bookmark in the bookmark menu have gone, which makes it difficult to identify some bookmarks just by their description alone

Hi simonarcher,

You should take a look at this article that discusses some of the issues with the latest build of Firefox.

There is some information in there that should help you to resolve your issue. Luckily, it is a very easy fix for the bookmarks.

As for you speed issues, I'd try starting Firefox in Safe Mode to see if it still happens. If not, then I'd start enabling your add-ons 1 at a time until you find the one that is slowing things down.

Hopefully this helps!
