sorry should of added,it puts firefox icon in tool tray and you launch it from there,pretty much instantaneously

Only takes two or three seconds in my case.

If you shut down your system without closing down Firefox, you can Restore the sesssion next time you reboot. It applies to any FF windows or tabs left open on shutting down.

Firetune click here

Not tried this myself as i have no problems with my Firefox,but came across this a while back click here use at your own risk,as i cannot verify how good it is.

I use Finetune; however the idea is to speed up browsing rather than initial loading.

Go to Tools/Advanced/Update

Turn off Automatically Check for updates to:
Firefox
Installed Add-ons
Search Engines

Should speed up your startup a bit
