I noticed that my FF takes very long to start.

I created a new profile and after doubleclicking it in the profile manager, it takes 5 seconds before the FF window appears.
Before it was around one second.
By before I mean " a few days ago", I do not know exactly.

Anyone else seeing this?

I have Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit.

Why not make a new clean profile make it the default and see if the normal starting procedure is slow? Going through the profile manager to start a profile I would think will slow things down

There's a bug (or feature, depending on how you look at things ;-)) for that.

5-second lag on each opening new Firefox window from command line on all concurrent FF users except first since machine boot.
