Here's how you can get SpeedyFox, a free extension that makes Firefox a faster browser.

Here's a description of SpeedyFox:
"SpeedyFox is a very light utility developed to boost the speed of Mozilla Firefox, a web browser already famous for the high speed it provides.
The application has been specifically designed with this goal in mind, so it doesn't comprise any other tool besides the dedicated feature to increase the web browsing speed.
In this regard, SpeedyFox relies on a minimal interface, with only a few options displayed in the main window.
Basically, it does the whole speed boosting job by solving fragmentation problems. We still don't know how exactly it achieves that because there's no help file included in the package, but developers assured that the entire process is 100% safe, so you don't risk to get your data compromised.
You just need to select the profile you wish to optimize, which can be either the default one or another profile stored on your computer. There's a single option in the main window, “Run Firefox after optimization”, and that's it."
