Hello, I bought my first Mac about 4 months ago. While I love the thing i'm starting to get quite annoyed of the speed of loading software programs. It's a MBP 2.2Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo and I have upgraded it to 4GB of RAM. Running Leopard. The issue I run into is when I startup the box and login, I would load Firefox and it literally takes 35 seconds before it loads up. Safari will take about 10 seconds to come up. That's crazy because my P4 windows box doesn't take long to load applications. Internet Explorer loads in a second. Is this normal? Could it be that I have stuff in my startup items?
