Firefox is very slow to open. It takes 3 to 4 minutes. I frequently must click on the icon more than once. I have v 5.0 and Win XP.

First let me disclose that I am not an expert nor even much less. However I used to have this slow as a turtle opening of FF until I got rid of my antivirus software which at the time was Avast. I switched to Microsoft Security Essentials and have had no problems since. FF loads in 3 to 4 seconds!
