Let's hope you are not using any bad tweaks. Try out with a new profile + no extensions + default theme. See if Firefox still takes a long time to load or not, and the memory it takes up.

Btw, Firefox perhaps can never startup very fast. This is due to XUL cross platform user interface used in Firefox.

Quote:
From Wikipedia ....

Some note that Firefox takes longer to launch than other browsers such as Internet Explorer or Opera on Windows. The non-Windows-native XUL implementation of the user interface may be the cause of this perceived delay. Other Gecko-based browsers such as K-Meleon, which use platform-native user interface implementations, generally run faster than Firefox. IE also launches faster than Firefox on Windows, as many of its components are built into Windows and loaded at startup. It is quite possible that if Internet Explorer did not load its components during booting, it would be much slower to start than Firefox. A small percentage of users complain of Firefox using much more memory than other browsers. This has been reported as memory leaks Mozilla developers claim it is sometimes at least partially an effect of the fast backwards and forwards (FastBack) feature. Another known frequent cause of memory leaks is misbehaving extensions, most notably Adblock.

What are your specs ?

And I just checked with 45 tabs even on an alpha product (Bon Echo). No crashes. Only thing .. with so many tabs open, it's a bit difficult to distinguish between them.

And the reason why Firefox takes longer to start is posted just above your post
