Make Firefox Work Faster


1. Enter the Configuration panel of firefox by about:config in address-bar .
2. Search and Set
browser.cache.disk.capacity to 3/4 th of existing value.
3.Search and set
browser.cache.memory.capacity to 3/4 th of existing value.
4. Restart you firefox. and you will have enough speed from your system to play with firefox.

Explanation :
Actually browser.cache.memory.capacity and browser.cache.Disk.capacity are the parameters that specify number of memory should be given to the Firefox While Execution. So setting it to lower value reduces load on the RAM and you work faster with your lovely Browser.

I'm sorry, it doesn't really help much. The tips in the second post will help a little.

The one in the first post won't work because it allows you to download from multiple connections.
Sir $wat
ok... thanx
