(He is using FF, though in using FF he also seems to have the symptoms common to what is being described here with SeaMonkey. So both threads could be relevant to both browser users.)

My security protector is AVG Free and I have the slow initial launch also. No other anomalies noted!

Yes, I can see that he is posting using Firefox but I want to make sure that he is reporting issues with Firefox and not about SeaMonkey. Only ineuw can tell us for certain.

I uninstalled SM 2.49.1 and deleted all related to SM then installed SM 2.48. Gonna try that with the same profile configuration and not import anything else just like the last 2.49.1 setup. Let you know tomorrow or Monday what happens.

All of them? Including those folders "c:\Users\[user_name]\AppData\Local\Mozilla\"?

It's not you standard profile folder placed in "c:\Users\[user_name]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\SeaMonkey\"... :-"

yes, uninstalled and deleted everything related to SM. Didn't touch the registry, however.

There is virtually nothing in the registry relating to SeaMonkey other than the default program settings for "Mailto" and the browser (association to URLs.)

didn't think the registry would be an issue. Figured the uninstall would take care of it to some extent if there were some SM stuff there.

So far 2.48 is working OK.

DanRaisch, my apologies, my problems are with Firefox and I am returning to the post I started. In addition, the reason I didn't see my posts were because didn't notice that this thread is three pages long.

This is a settings problem.

When a new profile is created it is OK for a while and then not. This suggests that a default setting is slowing things down. i.e. something is negatively impacting with use. It also suggests, to me, that the 'good' profiles have slightly different settings.

I would be doing a manual comparison of the settings in Options/Preferences and then those in Help> Trouble Shoot.

Actually, I would go straight for the Safe Browsing options and turn them off, as I reckon that is what is causing this.

Frank,
I considered that but after a clean reinstall of 2.49.1 and 2.48 the problem seems to crop up on the profile that is used the most. What changes? I don't know and what causes those changes I don't know.

I am currently running SM 2.48 at default, no changes and guess what, I have slow start on google as a home page. It seems fairly consistent after 24 hrs or so that something changes. Again, I don't know what. I don't know if it is a particular website or script. I have another Win 7 machine that I think is now exhibiting the same issue but I don't know if it is the machine or a goofy network connection. It's not consistent. Still working that out. My XP machine, is OK fine.

I never used 2.48 before. I went to 2.49.1 from 2.46. Next step is running 2.46 and see what happens on this particular machine.

Try this:
Menu -> Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Cache
1) "Compare the page in the cache to the page on the network" set to "Never" "Every time I view the page"
2) disable "Prefetch web pages when idle, so that links in web pages designed for prefetching can load more quickly".

If you don't use proxy:
Menu -> Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Proxies -> set "Direct connection to the Internet"

As an experiment you can change User Agent:
Menu -> Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> HTTP Networking -> in "User Agent String" field disable "Advertise Firefox compatibility"

Google main site behaves differently when detects "Firefox". 8-[

EDIT: ... because of my mistake #-o

Thanks for the suggestions. Other than changing Googles appearance, I did not see any improvement in initial load speed of the home page. Seems to be about the same.

Well... then maybe "Safe Browsing". You can try to disable it partially:
Menu -> Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> in field "Safe Browsing" disable both options

... and enable "Prevent tracking activities by known sites" but disable "Warn me when known tracking activities were detected".

In field "Location Aware Browsing" choose "Disable this feature and deny all requests".

To completely disable "Safe Browsing" (Google "spy") search e.g. this forum for more information/help.

CHeck "sqlite" files in your profile. SQLite Manager works for me:

Maybe some changes in "install.rdf" will help or use converter:
