Why Is my Browser so slow to start?

Basic question here, I'm sure.

Often, while I work, I'll have my browser (Firefox) minimized. I'm using all the typical programs, word processor etc. When I maximize the browser it is often very slow in materializing on my screen and the first couple of web pages load very slowly. However, In short time, it gets the lead out and I'm happily zipping along again.

My machine is relatively new, I am not CPU or memory challenged, and I don't notice this occuring with other programs.

Is this normal?

Normal? No.

I would have guessed high memory usage, but you say you're ok on that front. I still think that's the front runner...
