how to get firefox to load faster - Windows Vista

How do I make Firefox 3.5 open faster? I love FF but use IE8 when I want to get on fast because it opens faster...I'm running Windows Vista, Home Premium.

"If you have any add-ins installed, they can drastically increase the amount of time FireFox takes to load up.

Start by disabling all of the add-ins. Then enable them one at a time in order of priority to you. Stop when the amount of time it takes to start is as long as you are willing to put up with."

Firefox introduced a new thing where it scans all your temp files in 3.5. I believe in 3.5.2 they disabled this, so your best bet would be to update to that.

Also, if you don't like IE, but don't necessarily want to ditch all of your extensions in Firefox, consider using Chrome for those times when you just need a browser up right away. I use it for that purpose a lot, although Firefox is still my main browser.
