I've got your solution right here; Firefox Preloader. My FF (well, Minefield actually) now launches faster than IE and about as fast as Chrome.

Anyone here use the Minefield nightly builds? IT'S FAST.

Thanks, I'll probably be sticking with Chrome because of how elegantly it handles tab tearing and private browsing, but now if Firefox comes back with a killer feature, I don't have to worry about it being a slug.

Just grabbed it, lets see how it works!
Hopefully this will speed up using FF on school computers off my flash.

As for the RC, I may have to try it.... Hmmm...

NOTE: The Pre-Loader will not allow DownLoad manager to start!!!
I was downloading the Seven RC, and paused it to install this. Then I tried to start it back up, but was getting an error. Had to turn it off, and then restart. Hope it works otherwise, but just so you all know, it does not work with Download manager!

Huh? I'm not using any supercomputer and it opens, with many plugins and custom skin, before I can even realize I've lifted my finger off the quick launch.

Same on mine, though it takes a good two minutes on my school computers.

It's not a long wait, just a half second to a second, but half seconds feel awkward and seconds break trains of thought and make the system feel less responsive. And during any mdoerate disk activity, firefox crawls to launch. I've noticed it on pretty much every computer I've use recent versions of firefox on. It's not horrible, but after using chrome for so long, it's pretty annoying and definitely noticeable. On my system (q6600, 8gb ram, pretty new harddrive) there's a clear difference that goes: Chrome >>> IE8 > Firefox. This is the latest version with no extensions or plugins or anything.

Is there a way to run my stable FF 3.0.11 and the 3.5RC on the same OS (I mean have both installed in Win7)?
