Could be caused by history or live bookmarks loading. Or add-ons. Or all three. You can try out by starting Firefox in safe-mode: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Safe_Mode_(Firefox) If it still happens you could delete your livemarks or export your bookmarks as html and copy them to a new profile to test if they are the cause.
