This time we will describe some tips to save memory up firefox 3x, which means it will improve the performance of your favorite firefox. Step One open firefox, then the existing address type about: config

1. Limit the memory cache capacity 

Every time you open a web page, Firefox will automatically save in the cache memory. By default Firefox uses the maximum amount of RAM you have. That's why the more you open the web, your computer's memory is depleted. To limit the options add: browser.cache.memory.capacity. How right-click, New> Integer. Type browser.cache.memory.capacity, enter, enter the number 2048. 2048 here means use the maximum memory cache only 2 Mega. You could try - try with another number, but try a multiple of 1024.

2. Limit the capacity of the cache history 
Just as cache memory, only difference here by Firefox cache allocation is intended to speed up page loading when you press the back and forward buttons on the browser. If you rarely use the back and forward, you should set a small value in order to save memory. In the filter type: browser.session history.max_total_viewers, change the value of -1 to 3. Default -1 means use as much RAM available. hmm .. The default value of the Firefox really is not greedy?

3. Limit disk cache capacity 
By default Mozilla sets the disk cache size of 50 Mega. Surely this is a waste of memory. Set this to 2 MB can deliver positive performance, especially for a computer with 128 MB of memory and a hard drive under the old model. In the filter type: browser.cache.disk.capacity, change the value of 50 000 to 2000.

4. Limit extension / add-ons 
The more add-ons you use, the more RAM is spent. Disable add-ons that you use less. To compare the performance of memory used when using and without add-ons can be done by trying to run Firefox in safe-mode conditions. The trick with the command: $ firefox-safe-mode. In the options that appear make sure you tick the option: Disable all add-ons.

5. Disable Flash

Even the flash plugin before version 9, RAM resources used by an accumulation of the number of flash which opened earlier. A good idea to disable the flash. Please download and install flashblock addon to the tools menu> addon> get extension.

6. Disable download history 
You should disable the feature of this history. As more and more download history is saved, it will reduce the performance of Firefox. Especially when the media penyimpannya on removeable media such as floppy disks. It's easy, select the menu Tools> Options> Privacy. then remove the option to "Remember what I've downloaded".

7. Load to be 
By default Firefox without us knowing eager to pre-download on web page links that we might click. It mimics Google's tactics mencache first result of the first search link he found. Of course this will only waste bandwdith, and CPU performance. To disable this feature type in the filter: network.prefetch-next, double click, so its value to false.

8. Download and immediately show.
These tips may be useful for the impatient. Generally firefox will wait for some time after the download to begin showing the intended page. To force Firefox to immediately view the web pages you can set the value didownloadnya: nglayout.initialpaint.delay be 0. If no please right click, New> Integer> nglayout.initialpaint.delay

Tips to save more memory is to enable the feature config.trim_on_minimize. It's just that this feature is only effective in a Windows environment. How to right click, New> Boolean, type config.trim_on_minimize. Set the value True. In this way every time Firefox in minimized, automatic memory in use will be released / freed, so it can be used to process other applications.
