Do you have live bookmarks? Although afaik they don't load 2 seconds after startup but some seconds later.

Which specific action shows that Firefox doesn't respond?
Version: unspecified → 3.5 Branch

yes, i have live bookmarks, although i deleted them and the result is the same.

Firefox does not respond to any action and CPU reaches 50% (although on startup it's only ~30%)
