Firefox opens slow

Hi, I noticed today that my Firefox takes a long time to open (~1 min). All pages are quickly loaded though after it's started, it's just the initial starting up that takes so long. The only thing that I think I've changed was that I updated Java to Sun's Java, but I believe I took care of the Java symbolic links to Mozilla. Anyone have any experience with this or know what I may try to figure out what exacly the issue is?

Thanks in advance!

If you upgrade firefox, the first time it runs, it will be slow to load. After that it should be fast though. Perhaps you should look into the plugin situation again - what's in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins ? Also, try running it as a different user (login as root perhaps) to see if it is also slow as that user. If not, something is likeley messed up in yoru .mozilla folder.

Which Firefox version are you talking about?

I have never had problems with the one I download from www.mozilla.com and somewhere here I read that the Firefox 2.0 included in the development repo is somewhat slow.

It's better now. I don't remember if I restarted or just woke up the next morning and had it work. Thanks for the comments everyone
