I'm going to stick with the portable version for now. (I still have Firefox installed, but am not using the installed version.)

As a quick test, Maxthon opens to my home page (Yahoo) in about 4-5 seconds. Firefox portable takes 1-2 seconds longer. Installed Firefox takes at least 20 seconds or longer to open to my home page.

(This is on a I7 laptop running Windows 7 64-bit with 4 GB of RAM.)

I switched from Firefox to Comodo Ice Dragon for my primary browser.

The Mega Browsers may have a change in ranking if the others continue to develop and improve like they did this year.
To err is human, to blame it on a computer is even more so.

I'd agree with Anupam, if your installed version of FF is slow then it's most probably down to add ons ... a freshly installed and clean version is very fast.
