Add-ons Blocklist | Mozilla.

If you’re a Fire Fox user this list might be of good use to you.  Check to see if you’ve d/led and are running any of these plugins.  If so and you’re having problems with the browser starting up slowly or crashing then it might be one of more of these plugins doing it.
