    I'm not fully understanding "32bit PC and 64bit PC"; are these two different Machines?

    Thanks for responding Edwin, yes that is 2 different machines both are HP desktops one is a 32 bit pc and the other is a 64 bit pc. and they both boot up fast no problem but when i click on my Firefox browser to go on the internet the 32 bit pc browser opens completely in 8 seconds the 64 bit pc setup the same way with Firefox browser takes 25 seconds .I can not understand the difference.
    I am really curious. Thanks. Jerry

    If the architecture and FF bit versions are jiving, I can't pin the problem!

    Try resetting that super slow FF, even on my ancient laptop with single core and XP x64 it opens in 5 seconds.

    Hi, @jerrypc1:

    In addition to the excellent advice already offered....

    I agree, even 8 seconds to open sounds a bit slow.

    Most problems with Firefox (Fx) originate in the user's profile, not in the program itself.
    Before resetting it, there are a few, less drastic troubleshooting steps you might try.

    They are outlined here:
    Firefox - Standard Diagnostic
    Fix slowness, crashing, error messages and other problems

    Hope this helps,
    MM
