Firefox takes an abnormal amount of time to boot.

I have a very quick computer.
i7-3770k
16 GB Ram (Because I can)
120 GB Kingston SSD now
GeForce GTX 660ti 3GB Gigabyte Windforce Edition
12 Vortex 120mm fans
750 Watt Thermaltake PS
Windows 7 Ultimate

When ever I boot firefox it takes upwards of 2 minutes. My ssd is cleaned and opens all other programs fine. I've reset firefox to factory settings and removed all extensions. As well as tested other browsers. I've disabled Komodo Firewall and I own Malwarebytes premium.
I take good care to keep my PC clean and I've been a computer tech for 6 years now. This just be fumbles me.

**UPDATE:I've reinstalled firefox completely and my hardfaults are little to none. (NO SOLUTION)

Have you considered completely removing FF, cleaning the registry for all vestiges of the program, and then re-installing the latest version of FF?

If this is an only FF issue (and you have reinstalled as previously mentioned, then the likely culprit is one of the extensions.

Does this happen with no extensions installed?

Like I said all extensions have been removed and a fresh install has been added.

As a last ditch effort you can go to Help --> Troubleshooting information and choose Reset Firefox in the upper right-hand corner.

Firefox had started slowing down for me and this method sped it back up to acceptable levels.

I was having laggy interface problems in firefox, so I went into the plugin section of the addons menu and disabled all of the plugins except for Flash. I don't think that Plugins are disabled with a reset or even an uninstall / reinstall.

Is FF installed to your SSD or to your HDD?

Actually, that is not what you originally stated. However, I understand better now your situation.

What is your CPU utilization when FF fires up? Also, have you tried starting your system in Safe Mode (with networking) to see how FF behaves in that mode? If not, please do so and report back the results.

Sorry, not trying to give you a hard time, just trying to make the situation as clear as possible (difficult to do typing short messages sometimes).

Reset <> re-install. 2 different things altogether.

Now that is cleared up, what about the other questions?

Firefox is failing to read its own manifest files. I added extra spaces to skip unimportant loaded modules..
Could not read chrome manifest 'file:///C:/Program%20Files%20(x86)/Mozilla%20Firefox/chrome.manifest'.




Could not read chrome manifest 'file:///C:/Program%20Files%20(x86)/Mozilla%20Firefox/browser/extensions/%7B972ce4c6-7e08-4474-a285-3208198ce6fd%7D/chrome.manifest'.
While creating services from category 'profile-after-change', could not create service for entry 'Disk Space Watcher Service', contract ID '@mozilla.org/toolkit/disk-space-watcher;1'

I don't know how to interperate it but it seems important.

Have you run full anti-virus and anti-malware scans recently?

Also, how much free space is on your SSD?

I ran Malwarebytes anti malware full scan. And I have 30 GB free. The problem is not lack of disk space. Or a hardware problem because firefox is the sole problem.

From earlier:

What is your CPU utilization when FF fires up?

Also, have you tried starting your system in Safe Mode (with networking) to see how FF behaves in that mode? If not, please do so and report back the results.

Is FF installed to your SSD or to your HDD? I assume you are running from your SSD be the entries above. Correct?
