Other then fastest hardware....

Got any add-ons installed for FF?
Which version?
Have you tried loading it in FF's safe mode?

Ie is Windows explorer which is part of the system and is already loaded. There is no way that you can load ff as fast!
You could load ff in your start file and keep it minimized.

Or you could try using Firefox Preloader (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffpreloader/). :)
