Firefox seems slow loading

I recently installed Mozilla Firefox, I've made it my homepage but still kept Internet Explorer. I understood it to be really fast, yet it takes between 25 and 30 seconds to load on screen. Anyone advise?

Is IE fast? And, oh yeah, the Mozilla homepage is Google, and Google has been going slow lately.

Evening Josho, not sure what you mean by Mozilla homepage being Google, but IE is equally slow too.

  Josho™ 23:20 11 Jun 2006

Evening, is your IE hopage Google? If not, I think you may have changed some files by mistake, I'll look it up for you.

if both browsers are slow maybe time for a clean out ,
all temp files, scan for spy/malware...

Thanks Santos, hi pal, your link says Firefox is slow loading. Am I correct then in thinking it's normal?

  SANTOS7 23:25 11 Jun 2006

no not really, mine loads pretty fast, its just that as a third party browser its fully tweekable..
you may have some software conflict somewhere have you tried uninstall/reinstall

This will help speed it up, but it would be better to find out why it is slow anyway. You could try:
1. Restarting your PC
2. Reseting/Powering off then powering on your modem.
3. If you have a router restart that aswell.

Do you think that's necessary as IE seems as slow?

  Josho™ 23:28 11 Jun 2006

I said the above as sometimes my internet crawls, sometimes MSN works but Firefox and IE don't. I restart my router top speed.
