Join the club. *smile* It takes 5+ seconds to launch Firefox even if the
modest system resources are fully available. I did some rough benchmarking.

Again, join the club. My many extensions interfere with one another. I don't
know which one of the boys is fighting with who (with more boys now, it's
even harder to debug), but all I know is that memory begins to spill and
CPU usage soars 2-5 times a day, especially if I use mouse gentures
excessively. That Optimoz mouse genture thingie must be the naughty little
boy, but I can't reproduce the error when I wish to...

Luckily, I can save my work before I call 'kill' so no data is ever lost. I
have to re-open all the tabs though.

There is more. You become dependent on your extesions. I know I do. It took
me 3 hours just to set up Thunderbird the way I liked it. Since my Firefox
upgrade, I have never been truly satisfied. I spent 1-2 hours just fidling
with the DPI for fonts. It is still set wrongly... but I gave up.
