First of all, if you want to decrease Firefox load time, remove all addons that you installed on it. All addons must be loaded during the load time and most of them are heavy enough to increase load times by a scale of seconds.

Also, you can find some tutorials that promisses increase Firefox performance. Take a look at these links:

If you want to increase the startup speed on Mozilla firefox, maybe you can do these steps:

  • Defragment your hard drive. (If using Windows, you can found in the Start Menu ---> All Programs ---> Accessories ----> System Tools ----> Disk Defragment.

  • Remove all the History, Cookies, and Cache, then check the applicable options, or in the Mozilla Suite preference ("Advanced -> Cached Web Content, click clear now").

  • Clean your bookmarks.

then restart your browser..
