Firefox is not half as bad as Thunderbird which seems to take an age to launch when i click on the icon.Any one else have this problem.

Yes when I first click on Thunderbird after desktop has come on,it takes a long while to show.But after that it only takes a small while to come on.I'm on XP Pro.

It may be because AV and other items are still loading up.

Thunderbird is always slow to launch even if the PC has been on for 1 hour,where as outlook express will show a second after i click on its icon but i would rather use thunderbird.

i use the firefox preloader and thunderbird tray they sit in the task bar and start instantly
click here
and click here

Bit surprised at that. Firefox is available virtually instantaneously when I click on the Quick Launch icon.
