If startup is slow, these solutions may help.

  • Defragment your hard drive (accessed in Windows as "Disk Defragmenter", found in "All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools" in the Start Menu)
  • Clear your cache, cookies, and history in Firefox by pressing "Ctrl+Shift+Del" and check the applicable options, or in the Mozilla Suite preferences (under "Advanced -> Cache" and "Privacy & Security -> Cookies -> Cookie Manager").
  • Clean out your bookmarks.
  • If the other solutions fail, the standard diagnostic may be able to fix the problem.
