It might be my imagination but Firefox seems to open a bit quicker after applying these tweaks from Gnoted click here though I've never had to wait more than 20 secs or so for it to load.

You could try the Firefox Preloader:
click here
It will load a lot of Firefox at system startup but ,of course,adds to the startup time.
The firefox load time itself can depend on how many add-ons and extensions you have running.

As you have several browsers available, ensure that Firefox is the Default browser.
