[QUOTE=blegs38552;2580338]One thing that I will say is that IE 9.0 launches a hell of a lot faster than the latest iteration of Firefox 3.x. I have tried speeding Firefox up by not loading add-ins, but this doesn’t seem to do anything.
Maybe Firefox 4.x will be better?
Strangely, I have a dual boot computer with Win 7 and Ubuntu, and Firefox loading much faster in Ubuntu than in Win 7. Must have something to do with the way that I have ti set up. Maybe I should do a full uninstall and reinstall in windows and see what happens.[/QUOTE]
I’m also running a dual boot but of XP and Win 7. Firefox 3 gets bloated with add-ons and is slower than Firefox 4. I run Firefox 4 with AdBlock Plus, No Script, Ani Weather and Flashgot and it still fires up just about the instance I execute it. Firefox 3 on the other hand is slower and for some reason specially with add-ons takes forever to load, it sometimes took about a minute to load while my PC was sitting idle, but FF4 even with my PC under some hefty stress still started up instantly.
I would recommend upgrading to FF4 and just wipe FF3 from your system, it’s a hell of a lot better and way faster.
