Having grown tired of the time it takes FF to open from a previously closed-down operation, I looked around teh interwebz to see if there is something to aid in this process. It would seriously take up to 10 seconds for FF to start from clicking the icon--even longer if I clicked a link in an email or IM. I came across the Firefox Preloader. It runs at windows startup (or you can manually run it) to load bits of FF into system memory before opening FF, and now FF opens nearly instantaneously!

It only occupies 4-5MB in RAM usage, which was surprising to me.

Just google "Firefox Preloader" if you want to use it--I'm not sure if I can/should post the link here.

I looked around our forum and didn't come across anything mentioning it, and figured I'd share my discovery with the rest of the community.
