Can you please get a screenshot of the output from the command top and 
attach to this bug report, Also just in case can you get a screenshot of 
the output of the command ps aux | grep firefox
If firefox's cpu% or mem isnt very high please use the command ps aux 
and see what one is causing this. Does starting firefox from terminal 
change how long it takes??
Can you please list all your extensions and themes that you are running 
also please disable firestarter (its onlya  GUI to iptables) so it wont 
affect your settings atleast it shouldnt and see if firefox than loads 
faster. I have known firestarter to cause lag but never 15 minutes of lag.
