I'm about to install SpeedyFox, claimed to speed up Firefox through optimising the databases.

I already use Finetune Firefox, but this is a different type of utility, so I'm wondering if there's anyone who uses SpeedyFox who can provide some indication of its efficiency?

Haven't used it but looked at your link and then searched for my *sqlite files. Don't have that many and only two are particularly large so won't try it until you get positive response from somebody.

Well it's installed and FF does seem a little bit quicker. Opening seems faster although this would best be tested from boot up.

Hi Stuartli
Been using Speedyfox for about a month with no detrimental effects.
It is difficult to quantify generally how good the improvement is as the speed at which FF loads is very much dependent on how many bits and bobs you've got attached to it.
All I can say is that with over 20 add-ons and a huge list of bookmarks my FF will fully load in 4 to 5 seconds after running Speedyfox.

Trying it out, not noticed any difference yet.

It works for me FF opens and loads up much faster.
Thanks Stuartli

Thanks! I *think* it is quicker.

Thanks - just installed Speedy, definitely quicker opening sites/pages.

Cheers TT.

After a few starts of FF things do seem faster, thanks for the link.
