I have google set up as my home page and it takes 30-60 secs to load after opening the browser while in chrome it loads instantly. Same thing happens to youtube sometimes. This always happens after I turn on my PC. I have no problems with other websites. They load instantly. This started after the last firefox update. After this 30-60 sec loading period the problem dissapears.

I turned off hardware acceleration and it didn't help. I have no extensions installed, except adblocker and turning it off didn't help either. I cleared my cache and still no luck. In fact I have just reinstalled my windows so there is nothing on my PC that could cause trouble in any way.

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

If there is still a problem,

Start Firefox using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

While you are in Troubleshoot(Safe) mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.
