I'm having a problem with a number of apps on Fedora, including Firefox, Thunderbird, and MultiBit, where they take a long time to load. Often upwards of 10 seconds. My machine is powerful--third-gen i7 processor, SSD--and other applications open almost instantly. Is anyone else having this problem or know of a solution?

It looks like the slow applications have in common that they may access the network - is it actual starting them slow or accessing firefox home page and other online services (i remember some old ipv6 + firefox discussions There are many hints available at how to diagnose slow firefox (safe mode, etc) - i would try them out first.
