We all know that the only aspect that IE beats Firefox is the time it takes to load. This is because most IE-associated files are loaded up with Windows, in a process that many open-source lovers loathed Microsoft labeling it as unethical "because even if you don't use IE the files are already loaded on your system so it's resources are compromised".
So, is there a way to have Firefox components to be loaded along with Windows at boot in order to make the browser start faster each time I open it?
For Seamonkey, there is an option called Quick Launch. Maybe Fx also have it...
I remember there was a Prefetching option in Firetune (a program used to tune up Firefox) last time, but in the latest version, I think they have removed it after many criticisms about it.
I open firefox before opening aol,it loads straight away,i noticed in the past that after aol was open,th initial launch of firefox would take a while to come up,so i started opening firefox first,i dont know if its still nessecery to do so,but out of habit i still open firefox first.
Never bother to make the boot up process of firefox faster anymore..As I only open the browser once as I login..and close it only as I shut down my laptop...Anyway in my opinion,the loading time is not too long if we compare for all the security and goodness that you get through firefox..the only true internet browser..
You got a point, but in my case my pc stays on 24/7. I close it only because of the endless RAM gluttony when I have to load a game or burn a media in Nero, to prevent competition for memory. But each time I hit my hotkeys to load Firefox is so boring... IMO, the only drawback in Firefox.
This 'prefetch' tweak scrambles with the memory?
