   Previously,  I’ve shared with you an article “Convert Firefox into FasterFox” and now I’m taking that one step further and now I’m going to share with you free tool to speed up your Firefox.

    Mozilla Firefox is by far the best feature-rich and fastest browser out there, but with the passage of time it slows down considerably. It will take a lot of time to load during startup, the overall speed will be effected, and browsing Histories will be too slow. This is very common problem and it occurs largely because of fragmentation of databases.

    SpeedyFox is a brand new small utility that fixes this problem with a single click! It seems unbelievable but after you optimize your Firefox with this tool, you will get a fresh newly-installed feel because the speed indeed gets considerably faster. You will get up 3 times faster startup speed, browsing history will become faster, and performing operations with cookies will be quicker than before.

  

How does it work?

    Firefox uses SQLITE databases to store lots of its settings. By the time the databases grow and Firefox starts working slowly. SpeedyFox compacts those databases without loosing any data.

Features :-

  • Boost Firefox startup in up to 3 times!
  • Speed-up browsing history
  • Quicker operation with cookies

Tutorial:-

    Once installed, SpeedyFox automatically detects your Firefox’s default profile. If you have more than one profile, you can select the one you want to optimize from the drop-down menu. All you have to do is select the default profile that you want to optimize and hit Speed Up Firefox button.

    The optimization process can take anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour depending on how large your databases are. The whole optimization process is safe as it does not effect your history, bookmarks, passwords, etc.

How to tell whether Firefox is faster after optimizing it:-

1. Clear the cache of Firefox from the Firefox settings dialog – this is very important!

 

2. Before you optimize Firefox, navigate to http://www.numion.com/stopwatch/ and do a speed test on http://www.mozilla.org/productsl/firefox/

  

3. The time needed to load the site completely will be displayed to you in the browser window. Write down the time

4. Clear the cache of Firefox from the Firefox settings dialog again – this is very important!

    

5. Now, close Firefox, and optimize it with SpeedyFox

6. Start Firefox again, and repeat the speed test on http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

7. Compare the displayed result with the result from the test before the optimization.

    SpeedyFox has significantly improved several factors that must be taken into account, however the results in most cases are satisfactory, you just check this out and feel  the difference in speed of firefox. Download now!
