On start-up, is there a way to have Firefox start at boot-up?

If Firefox is your default browser...it should be running immediately, once your firewall has set up system defenses, I think. If you have a broadband connection, the Internet is accessible once the system settles down completely...via the default browser.

What are you trying to accomplish?

Thanks Louis, what I want to do is have Firefox come up at boot.
I think I have it now......I had to put it in the startup menu.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
(I wanted the Firfox browser to be displayed at boot due to others
using the computer)

I put FF in my Startup folder also - for a while.

My perception was it took too long, but I am sure it actually took no longer than normal, and I sometimes am impatient. It just seemed longer!

Now I run Google Chrome in my Startup (and starting to like it after a days and a few tweaks) and keep FF in Quick Launch until needed.
