Remove Locales to Make Firefox Start Faster

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

Firefox does seem to run slower when it’s all loaded up with applications and add-ons …

It happens quite often that Firefox users tell me that their browser is not the fastest to start up. I personally do not have the problem at all, but this can be attributed to the solid state drive the browser is installed on, and the fact that I do not run excessive amounts of extensions or tabs that need to be restored on startup.


QuickDrag – Speed Up Firefox Actions with Drag and Drop

Friday, September 24th, 2010

This sounds like a pretty useful add-on …

The Firefox web browser offers a variety of add-ons that can speed up specific actions in the browser. Actions in this case mean everything that requires manual interaction, like searching for text in a specific search engine, saving an image on a page or loading an url that is not linked properly on the page.

QuickDrag, as the name implies, adds drag and drop to the browser to speed some of the actions. To be precise, it can speed up saving images on a page, loading urls and performing searches.
