when i first got firefox it used to fire up immediately. now it takes about 10-12 secs! is it cause i ve installed a lot of extensions?

NOPE. I am an experienced firefox user. Not because of extenctions. Some other prob.

well for me its worse it takes long to open and then yaa windows open fast but if i minimize it
and say do some other work and then try to maximize firefox its turns really slow and buggy
from what i noticed is tht if ur system RAM is being used up too much then this happens

the best solution is OPERA

BTW almost all softwares take some time to load the first window. havent u noticed this? for eg take MsWord or PPT or excel or photoshop etc

It is obvious for anything loading first window to take time since its being first loaded into memory ... once in there it doesnt take anytime to open subsequent windows that is why we use RAM for ! :)

mate i dont think that you should happen with a web browser. adobe acrobat and photshop etc have to load lotsa plugins so it takes time. and it never happened the first month i used firefox. it use to just fire up! maybe they have some microsoft developer on their team
:wink:

me thinks its the skins that take a long time to get the software running. If u can connect can any 1 of u remember that when u use a modern skin with winamp it takes a long time to start. maybe that thing applies to ff also. Just a guess tho.

Use IE

Guys, why struggle. Use with tabbed browsing plugin or use QuickBrowser, the awesomely fast tabbed browser htp://geekstuffs.tripod.com

try reinstalling

Re-install firefox, but not in the usual way. Uninstall, then delete the installation folder, then navigate to your documents and settings folder>username>application data>mozilla and then delete the folder. It should work. Also, do not install any of those buggy themes...
