Firefox 4 startup gets faster (Download Squad)

Nov 7th 2010 6:18PM Firefox 4-beta6 takes THIRTY TWO seconds to startup on my reasonably fast and modern computer -way longer than any other browser and longer than any prior release of FF.

I do not restore sessions at all - my default is to open one BLANK (about:blank) tab. This time is the startup time for a single blank tab.
It's really horrible. My COMPUTER boots into Windows 7 from a total power off state in about the same time! (Minus the poweron/bios check time).

FF is getting so ridiculous on startup time I'm getting ready to dump it!
Design goal is definitely not being met!
