The computer has to tell the idle motor where to position itself for the cold start. This of course will change slightly after started to obtain correct cold rpm. So, turning key on and waiting a few seconds should help if difficulty is encountered starting.
If it does not start after a few short try's, I would try just a tiny bit of throttle and if that does not get any result, time to put her on the floor. I think most all fuel injection gasoline engines now are designed to shut fuel off when holding accelerator down all the way. Years ago, I guess this was a real problem when you flooded them as it kept right on fueling the engine even with pedal down. I remember the horror stories of having to pull all the spark plugs out, dry them off, and purge cylinders to get them going. Haven't heard that for many years. I don't have block heater in either of my vehicles. Wish I did I the pickup now but too cold to put one in and won't need it when weather warms up. Car is in heated garage which is too short for these dad gummed extended cab pickups t hat you cannot find any other kind (used)now days.
I recall some Ford Taurus models that required t hat tiny bit of throttle to start in normal temps. Don't know if that affected a lot of them or if it was just a hiccup on some, but do recall the Ford mechanic telling that to a friend of mine who was having difficulties. That took care of his complaint.
