However , on the home p.c. , (which has Avast (Free) & Comodo Firewall (Free) installed plus quite a few Programs that get loaded on Start-up) , it takes anywhere between 10 seconds to about 2 minutes for pages or links on pages to load . You have too much stuff running/loaded in memory. Try not auto-starting so much stuff, or get more RAM. And what about FF extensions? Have you tried starting FF in Firefox Safe Mode?
