I recently upgraded from FF 3.6 to FF 6. I am having problems with the amount of time it takes for the browser to initialize. FF 3.6 usually loaded ( I am classifying "load" as the time it takes from double clicking the FF icon until the browser appears) in 3-5 seconds. FF 6 is taking 45-50 seconds upon system restart and 12-18 seconds after being shutdown and restarted. I am running the same system with FF6 as with FF3.6 but the browser just loads MUCH slower. Any info you could provide would be much appreciated.
