American on Mozilla forum that put the javascript file on his desktop, and he could not understand why it did not work that way, his FF was not faster.
:D :D :D :D :D

Well this American looked in his FF folder for a place to put his "standalone" :P

I've had the file in the component folder for 1 day. I'm not sure if there has been an improvement, however my browser was fast without it therefore it is hard to tell. i think there has been a slight improvement though.

 >:(I have FIREFOX 2.0.0.4, CYBERHAWK, PREVX. I followed the instructions but found my browser going a bit slower (downloading the firefox google page took twice as much time...) so I deleted the file from my component folder. I use the freeware FINETUNE for firefox.

By the way I use an internet speed connection of about 639 Kpbs which is intermediary internet. I think that cyberhawk and Prevx are slowing my surfing on the web.

Hi gdliloren,

Could well be, browsers are complex beasts. The code now has been tried by 71 users that downloaded and adopted my code, but it now is available elsewhere as well. Your actual webpage load is also depending on various other factors. The SelectionableElementsTable has to do with selecting elements.
I do not know what GetElements type of file is active inside your browser. It is particular for particular web pages that render better and faster, it does not do much for your Internet speed as such I am afraid. But some report 50% improvement in browser speed. We just have to wait and see, and how the Mozilla developers are gonna respond. Maybe it works better in combination with Locationbar2 that I have installed. I spotted the improvement at once, then came out with the code. If we do not do these things we never get anywhere. Thanks for your evaluated report, stay secure...

Hi Tech,

Locationbar2, read here: http://en.design-noir.de/mozilla/locationbar2/
It helps against re-directs, and is an improvement over the common default url bar. The favicons are rendered in tabs, and not in locationbar2 because of a security risk in chrome, but if you favicons is your hang up you can override that. I found it also speeds up page rendering. If you like to try it get it at the Mozilla add-on page, because that has https, it is not advisable to download add-ons and extensions from third parties. There are two extensions that are better then the ones that come standard with FF or Flock that is this one Locationbar2, and Console2 a better version of the Error Console, the developer of JSView on his forum said it was coded very strictly and sharply and had some functions that make it an excellent add-on for FF or Flock, and I consider Ron an expert in this respect. Why this was not brought into the Mozilla browsers by default is beyond me. The browser you download as default is not the optimal browser you like to have, that is why I do so much postings about making Mozilla browsers better and more secure.

Thanks Polonus, now I remember that we have tried this before while studying redirection.
I don't want another bar, I think I can live with my 'bloated' firefox as it is now.
But thanks again.

Hi Tech,

You got me totally wrong here, you will NOT get another bar, not an extra one, just a better url bar where your web addresses normally appear. There is no extras, just an extension, and a better more secure rendering of URL addresses. It just changes something what is in your browser now for something much more secure. Why you thought about an added bar? The only bar I have in my Mozilla browser is the Netcraft toolbar, because of a lack of a decent anti-phishing solution, and I do not want to wait for FF 3.0 to bring that in. Capito?

Alas I just use IE7 now, with the occasional foray on Safari .  In fact I don't think I have used it since I had problems with the initial 2.0

Hi bob3160,

Thanks for the mirror-link with the additional instructions.
And I hope all that download will benefit from it.

Hi Bob,
       I know you're a respected old Avast Forum member but upon clicking to your link I get a red alert for phishing site from NETCRAFT FF extension. What to think? :(
