Why is FF takes so much time to open web sites?

I am going to compare FF with Google Chrome. So, I have a site that I would like to open: truconnect.com It only takes 3 seconds for Google Chrome to open that web site. When it comes to FF, it takes good 6 seconds, which is much slower. My question is: can the plugins I installed cause this problem? Is there a way to determine if a plugin loads fast enough and does not slow the whole browser? Thank you.

You can try to use the Web Console (Web Developer > Web Console;Shift+Ctrl+K) to see how much time items take to load.

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
