I assume the same will be said of Pale Moon/Waterfox when their additions are updated. It could be my imagination, but each release of the previous browsers, of late, load much slower.

This has been a case from two years now. Nothing new. Not everyone prefers Firefox for it's speed.

It isn't your imagination. I have noticed a major slow-down in palemoon load times for a while now (seems like for two or three months, but it may be longer - not sure in which version it began). Palemoon (x64) used take about half as long on initiall load as Firefox (x32), but lately it has slowed to the point that it takes around 50% LONGER than firefox on first start-up. Since Palemoon is "optimized" for speed by removing a lot of the less freqently used code, like support for Windows 98, etc., that slow-down is surprising and a little disappointing to me. I used to prefer it over Firefox by a large margin ( I lke the other advantages of using 64 bit, as well as the extra speed that I got from Palemoon). While I still like Palemoon, the slow load times, as well as some loss in it's overall performance advantage over Firefox, make it a fair amount less desirable than it once was. Hopefully, they will get it back on track soon. I also find Internet Explorer and Chrome to be faster and perhaps more "smooth", but with Chrome, I know I have absolutely NO chance for privacy, and in Internet Explorer, I just can't find a way to handle some downloads or passwords that satisfies me. Guess I'm a little too picky about some things, sometimes.

It isnt about page loading speed or startup time, these for me are fine, it simple feels like something is holding back the performance.

I dont know how to put this in words, but it is like playing some heavy game without V-Sync (like Rage without updates on Radeon)

I installed SmoothWheel extension and It seems to be a little better ...

Ps: Pardon me for some grammar erros, I am not a native english speaker and it is time to go to bed ^_^

if you are referring to scroll speed, Webkit / Blink always had faster scrolling speed, and with IE10, IE has faster scrolling too.

For Firefox, try this trick.

You could just upgrade to an SSD.. On a clean profile Firefox starts in about a second for me. You might also want to look at just creating a new profile..
