Mozilla Firefox : tips to make Mozilla Firefox faster

In older post i have wrote about firefox for blind, this time i will give you some tips to make Mozilla Firefox faster. Mozilla Firefox is one of the popular Internet browsers. Although today, many are already switching to Google Chrome, but for those who are too in love with Mozilla Firefox, it's rather difficult to move to the other.

Mozilla Firefox is quickly lost when compared to Google Chrome. But with some settings that do on Mozilla Firefox, we can make Mozilla Firefox faster. This is especially for you who wear the old type of computer with small memory capacities.

You can make Mozilla firefox faster by do these tips:

The first step to make Mozilla Firefox faster are:


1.Limit Add-Ons
More add-ons that you use, the more RAM is spent. Disable add-ons that you use less. To compare the performance of memory used when using and without add-ons can be done by trying to run Firefox in safe-mode conditions. You can type command: $ firefox-safe-mode. At the option that appears make sure you check the option: Disable all add-ons.

2.Disable Download History
We recommend that you disable this feature. The more download history is stored, it will reduce the performance of Firefox. It's easy, select the Tools menu> Options> Privacy then remove the option to "Remember what I've downloaded". It will make Mozilla Firefox faster.

3.Disable Flash
You can make Mozilla firefox faster by disabling Flash. Flash animation that is loaded when you open a web will consume huge RAM resource. The consequence is the loading time is slower and heavier. Even for flash plugin prior to version 9, RAM resources used by are an accumulation of the amount of flash which opened earlier. You can download and install the Flashblock addon to disable it.

The second step to make Mozilla Firefox faster, you must make arrangements in Mozilla Firefox. You can do this by typing about: config in address bar.

1. Limit your Cache Memory Capacity
Every time you open a web page, Firefox will automatically save in the cache memory. By default Firefox uses the maximum amount of RAM you have. That's why the more you open the web; your computer's memory is depleted. The trick is: right-click, New> Integer. Type browser.cache.memory.capacity, enter, and enter the number 2048. 2048 here means use the maximum memory cache only 2 Mega. You can try with another number, by multiplying 1024 number.

2. Limit Cache Disk Capacity
By default Mozilla sets the disk cache size of huge MegaBytes. Surely this is waste of memory. Setting it to 5 MB to provide a positive performance, especially for computers with 128 MB of memory and hard disk under the old model. In the filter, type: browser.cache.disk.capacity, change the value 5000.

3. Limit Cache Capacity History
Just as cache memory, the only difference here by Firefox cache allocation is intended to speed up loading pages when you press the back and forward button on the browser. If you rarely use back and forward, you'll want to set a small value in order to save memory. In the filter, type: browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers, change the value of -1 to 3. Default -1 means to use as much RAM available.

4. Download and Show.
Generally Firefox will wait a while after downloading to start displaying the page. To force Firefox to immediately display the web page you can set the download value.In the filter, set nglayout.initialpaint.delay to 0. If there is not exist yet, right click, New> Integer> nglayout.initialpaint.delay

5. Enabling config.trim_on_minimize features
The trick right-click, New> Boolean, type config.trim_on_minimize. Set the value True. Every time Firefox in minimized, automatic memory in use will be released, so it can be used to process other applications.

6. Load Only What You Need
By default Firefox will eager to pre-download on web page links are likely to click. This tactic similar to Google that it will cache of a search link that it found. Of course this is only wasting the bandwidth and CPU performance so can't make Mozilla Firefox faster. To disable this feature type in the filter: network.prefetch-next, click twice, for its value to false.

Restart your Mozilla Firefox. You can test yor Mozilla Firefox now. I hope these tips can make your Mozilla Firefox faster.
