    FireFox taking too much time to launch first time after start pc.

    Hi to all.
    I m here again with a problem which I facing since long. when I start computer and launch FF. it takes too much time. no more then at least 50 sec to 1 minute. after start first time, if I close FF and start it again its its launch quickly. and the most funny thing is which is wonder me alot that FF itself know that and often after start FF, its says in status bar of FF that "FF taking too much time to start, to solve this problem follow the steps" (or something like that)
    and FF suggest Reset firefox from FF button->Help->troubleshoot problem->reset firefox.
    but this method did not solve the problem. FF updated regularly when new update available and the current version is,,,,,, 27.01.
    my pc specs is in this forum.

    Troubleshooting Firefox


    Have a look here:

    Try disabling all plugins on a temporary basis and see if Firefox starts faster.

    Before trying to reinstall Firefox - backup your Firefox profile using:

    MozBackup - Backup tool for Firefox and Thunderbird

    Run the program and backup your current profile and save it as a .pcv file somewhere handy.

    Then fully remove Firefox and either reboot or run a system cleaning product.

    Reinstall Firefox and see if it boots faster. If it doesn't - it's not a problem with Firefox.

    If it's okay - run MozBackup again and use it to restore the profile that you saved earlier.

    Start Firefox.

    you shouldn't try to boot up any browser right away when your computer starts up and you may have other things trying to start at startup you should wait a few minutes I even try to avoid firefox at all possible and use internet explorer

    Your disk is probably still busy with other tasks. The second time around it is loaded from RAM cache and that is, of course, very fast.

    There is probably not much you can do short of getting a SSD for your OS.

    only 1 extension is install and active. which is idm cc.
    I try IE (v8 win 7), right after start the pc, and its launch immediately.
    hdd not bz when I starts FF. instead when I starts FF hdd led constantly on, not just blinks. like I transfer a huge amount of data to hdd. that kind of hdd led indication never blinks when I launch max payne 3 or any other 25/30gb game. don't know why its shows ON (heavily busy) when click FF. untill FF starts. although 1tb wd hdd speed is nice.

    One thing that can be causing it is the Nvidia 3D Vision plugin, as it likely has to wait till the driver for it is fully started. If you don't have the Nvidia 3D Vision kit (3D glasses), you can safely uninstall it through Programs and Features.

    P.S. Next time you update.install the Nvidia drivers, make sure to select the custom install option and don't even bother installing the 3D Vision driver.
