    Hi all,

    I have a problem with Mozilla Firefox.
    When I open it, it takes about 10-15 sec to StartUp.
    Also when I close it, it starts using about 85-95% CPU and takes about 10 sec to close completely.

    Extensions I have installed:

    I have default theme.No themes installed.

    Plugins I have installed:

    10 to 15 seconds isn't a long time for Mozilla Firefox to load, especially when it has to load all those plug-ins and add-ons.

    What Windows version are you using?

    What's the processor type and speed?

    How much RAM does it have?

    How many checked entries are there in Start - Run - MSCONFIG - OK - Startup(tab)?

    It can be the reason that you open a lot of tabs in a go it is recommended that you open only 10-15 tabs at a time on in a browser if more than that opened it will definitely eat up your CPU try opening fewer tabs and see the difference, and one more things only install those pliug inns those have been highly recommended by people don't try and install any plug inn
