Firefox - Taking over a minute to open

  AngeTheHippy 08:55 04 Aug 2008

Anyone know why please? I've ust opened IE and it took 6 seconds - when I open Firefox it's taking over a minute!!

Are there 'tweeks' I should give it or maybe just uninstall/reinstall?

Are you using the latest version!.

Have you done any spring cleaning recently!.

Spuds, yeah - I springclean fairly regularly nowadays, so don't think it's that. It's v. - just d/loading v.3 now. Will I need to uninstall v.2 or will it overwrite it do you know?

Thanks Marg7, as I mentioned above - I'm d/loading v.3... lets see what happens!!

If you have a lot of themes/add-ons/extensions for Firefox then that can drastically affect the speed at which it loads.
Try disabling them one at a time to see if there is any improvement.
You should also use Mozbackup;

which will preserve you bookmarks and profile just in case there are any problems.(particularly evident for those who have installed version 3 and then decided to revert to version 2)
