I came across this link from cnnettv.com about speeding up firefox which i found interesting
of course the last two suggestions are a bit obvious concerning clearing downloads and removing slow extensions, but I liked the one he said about going to "about:config" and changing the caching of previous pages via the back button. I was wondering if anybody knew of any other similar tricks that are worth doing to speed up firefox? I've only got 256mb of ram myself, and firefox is usually taking 40-60k mem usage, so would be interested in ideas to speed it up a bit. Still haven't gotten used to K-Meleon !
