Jari-Matti Latvala repeated his earlier blistering pace through SS6, the 24km Myra stage.
The Finn won the stage with a time 10 seconds quicker than anybody else to move ahead of his BP-Ford team-mate and into the rally lead.
Hirvonen was second fastest to keep close to Latvala, and after SS5 the BP-Ford team leader lies 4.4sec adrift on the overall leaderboard.
Sebastien Loeb was third fastest and moved up two places into fourth overall.
Subaru World Rally Team driver Chris Atkinson reported front suspension damage early on in the stage. Although he was able to complete the test he retired on the road section to SS7. The team expect that Atkinson will restart on Saturday as a Superally entry.
