It also helps if the server can launch an instance of FF when it starts
up. Set up a vncserver account and have that account autostart firefox
to a internal page. This will preload the binary and libs and make the
server feel much faster.

It is possible that the slowness is 30 simultaneous launches tha all see
they are solo-instances. FF supports shared libs and binary. But there
must be one fully running to work.
