	Additional data point:

FreeBSD 10.0-CURRENT #0 r248938: Sun Mar 31 06:24:42 EDT 2013  amd64


	AMD Phenom, 4 cores @ 3 Ghz, 8mbytes RAM

	With the load (as reported by top) at around 6, Firefox 20 also
takes ~12 seconds.
	On the other hand ... once I open a browser I work within it,
until it's no longer needed (or it crashes :-( ).  Opening a new
window/tab in SeaMonkey is so fast I can barely see it happen.
