Iceweasel takes forever (minutes :) to start when I have no

Since time immemorial I copy over onto every new system:

which I got from Debian someplace, sometime. Which I modified to show what system is booting, but avoiding the network + set as homepage.

You want that?

That sounds as if it could be very useful, although I'm thinking that my problem has to do with the fact that I always have tabs open on start up.  I don't want to forego that functionality if it can be helped.  I'm thinking a script of some kind that would get me logged in, and so on the 'net, before Iceweasel starts up.

Thanks to all for the words of wisdom and advice.
