What surprises me Bob is for someone that is so sceptical about putting an unknown file on their system from an unknown source, that they went ahead and did it anyway.

Hi bob3160.

You were right to hang on to this bit of code, see  read down there:
http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=561171

So in the code <cfset var tmpHolder = " "> should be
                     <cfset var tmpHolder=" "> according to the Florida tester.

hi Polonus,

I just discovered your posting of a tweak for Firefox.  I realize this is nearly 2 years old.

I am wondering if it could be applied to Firefox 3.05 in order to speed it up.

I have an AOL dialup connection.  Do you think it would help?

Hi greyowl,

Try it out and report to me, what it does. I had good reports from Aussies then and these also are/were mainly on dial-up connections, the code resides here: http://tentdwellers.org/index.php?topic=1393.msg10606#msg10606

Hi bob3160,

Thanks for keeping it there in your archives, bob 3160, for the mutual trust, and for the rest, the code was found to be for inside IE and this code is now also officially supported in the Mozilla's browsers, so what was unknown then has proven itself over these two years,

hi Damian,

I tried the script on my dial up connection with Firefox 3.05 on XPsp3 computer.
I used www.numion.com/stopwatch to test the time to open www.neowin.net
The results are 1:17 without the script, and 1:25 with the script (min:sec).
So it does not appear to help with my situation.

I have already done some prior tweaking from suggestions on other websites.

Thanks for your efforts,
greyowl
