For some reason it takes 20 -30 secs to load the home page when I start firefox. It does not appear to have anything to do with the actual home page. Google is as slow to load as anything. Once started, it performs as expected, less than 2 secs to load the home page.When I create a new profile, the problem goes away with that profile.
Any ideas as to how to "fix" my profile??
TIA Greg

If you do a Firefox refresh/reset, a lot of things are lost, but some things are kept. Your extensions and extension settings are lost, but it does keep your bookmarks, and history. Don't rush into it, think about it first:

There are other methods you could use instead.

It's possible that A Bad 'Safebrowsing' Causes High CPU Usage & Slow Startup Times.

Exit FF.
Rename existing /safebrowsing/ directory to /safebrowsing.OLD/.

Start FF & see if that made a difference?
If it did, it would be interesting to know the names/dates of the files in .OLD.

I checked my cpu usage and it was low, so I tried your solution and it worked.
Thanks,
