Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start IE 6 from freshly booted machine. ~10 seconds. 2. Start IE 6 again. 1-2 seconds. 3. Start Firefox from freshly booted machine. ~20 seconds. 4. Start Firefox again. ~20 seconds. Expected Results: I would have expected Firefox to be more nimble than IE6. On my workstation(3GHz 512MB) machine, there is no appreciable difference in startup times.
you were basing your expected results on what, exactly? IE leaves a lot of itself in memory once loaded, plus it is a native app heavily integrated with the OS. On systems below the documented system requirements, we expect to see poor perf. Also, given that we don't stay in memory, startup times will be the same on each load. If you want things to stay in memory, use Mozilla with QuickLaunch. see http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/system-requirements.html *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 171082 ***
