Slow Firefox Launch and Load

Running Windows 11 on a Dell XPS 8930. Internet download speed is 100Mb/sec. With every update of Firefox it seems to take longer and longer to launch Firefox and load open windows and tabs. Several minutes of the back and forth ball on each tab. I can launch Chrome and its windows and tabs load almost immediately. What can I do to improve Firefox performance, short of abandoning it?

Thanks. In Troublehooting Mode it was a bit better... about half the tabs loaded right away. Then I did a Refresh, and restored all my previous windows and tabs. Now it does load much quicker. I'll keep that in mind in the future.
