I did a fresh install of Fedora 23 on my laptop. Everything worked fine out of the box. After installation, I updated the system (the kernel got updated too) and added RPMfusion repos. When I restarted, Firefix and Libreoffice started taking extremely long to start. Even on repeated startup attempts, Libreoffice writer took no less than 15-20 seconds to load. That does not happen on Windows, or even the Fedora 23 KDE spin.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a fix?

Edits: 1. The same issue comes up in the Fedora 23 KDE spin as well. 2. If one instance of firefox is already started, and I want a new window, it starts up immediately.

Open both the application from a terminal and see if it shows any error? Also check under journalctl -qb /usr/bin/firefox for any errors.

@anishjp The journalctl command returns "no entries". Starting firefox from command line also takes a long time, and the only message I get is

GLib-GIO-Message: Using the 'memory' GSettings backend. Your settings will not be saved or shared with other applications.
