Why does it take Firefox so long to load when I first start the program?

Why does it take so long to open Firefox when selected?

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== has continually gotten slower for months. Last time it took 92 seconds.

The problem remains, if not worsened, in 3.6.8.

It takes a long...........time for Firefox to open, and when it opens, sometimes it shuts down, and is reaaaaaaaaaaaaal slow, this just happened recently, what can I do? It is doing weird things.

When none of the suggested fixes worked for me, I did a system recovery to an earlier date when I know Firefox worked, and that did it for me - after the system recovery, Firefox automatically updated to version 13, and it's super fast now. Obviously, the slowdown was caused by Windows security updates...
