The start up time of the Firefox web browser ranges from almost instantly to half a minute or even more on some systems.

The Firefox web browser offers a variety of add-ons that can speed up specific actions in the browser. Actions in this case mean everything that requires manual interaction, like searching for text in a specific search engine, saving an image on a page or loading an url that is not linked properly on the page.

QuickDrag, as the name implies, adds drag and drop to the browser to speed some of the actions. To be precise, it can speed up saving images on a page, loading urls and performing searches.
