Speed-up Firefox start-up time

Of course Mozilla Firefox is the feature-rich, fastest browser in the world, but with the passage of time it slows down considerably. It will take a lot of time to load during startup, browsing histories will be too slow and the overall speed will be slow.

This is a very common problem and is mainly due to fragmentation of databases. SpeedyFox is a freeware utility that fixes this problem with a single click. It will speed-up Firefox’s startup time, speed-up browsing history and the operations with cookies will be faster.

After installation, it will automatically detect 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.

After installing this utility, I noticed an improvement in the start-up speed of Firefox. You can download (1.3Mb) SpeedyFox from the program’s home page.
