Or Opera which is faster than FireFox.
Anyway, three minutes is pretty slow. I'd check and see what all is using your internet connection. Check your firewall (logs if no realtime display) and see what's making outbound connections.
If you just have windows firewall, get one with outbound control also - I recommend Outpost Pro 3, but ZA is a passable free one.
Also, do the normal spyware checks - AdAware and Spybot at the least, perhaps TrendMicro's housecall?

I've had similar problems. Turned out to be a problem in the phone line between the SBC and me. You might try disconnecting and then checking your phone line for unusual noise, static and such. This can cause a lot of problems on dial-up.
