I on my gentoo, compiled firefox was always slower than binary firefox. I tried swiftfox, and it was the fastest. This is because of disabled pango on swiftfox.
If I run firefox with "MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO=1 firefox" my builded firefox is faster than both. And compiled with --as-needed flag it start much faster than official and swiftfox


I would take that as a hint that pango is not built optimally. Perhaps you should check your flags for pango and try rebuilding it.
