Firefox slow startup?

  gel 19:23 17 Jan 2010

I have been with Firefox more or less from day one
Recently it seems to be slow in start up.
Is there any one who has tried 3.6 beta noticed any improvement in speed.
I have tried Chrome and that seems much quicker.
Alternatively am I being slowed down by 'add ons' and 'extensions' ?
Thanks for comments

I've noticed the same thing. Chrome starts much faster, whereas FF takes minutes to fire up.

I'm on V 3.5.7 and it takes about 15 seconds to fire up, a lot longer that IE8 which I use as default.
No idea as to the reason.

I'm on 3.5.7 and no probs. 2 sec start up.

Same version as rawprawn and takes six seconds to get to the firefox start page. Left it as homepage. Only use a few add-ons. Beta are a trial and may show problems.
