JuninhoSlo,

The only things I can suggest is to keep cleaning out your machine after browsing; defrag your machine periodically (Puran (free) does a nice job as well as a boot-time defrag  http://www.puransoftware.com/ to speed up your machine; consider decreasing the amount of add-on's in FF (see if anything duplicates the others or is really essential).

Is there anything else I can help you with?

I removed a few add-on,s and looks like MF works faster.(Puran) defrag I will try this program but now I stay with UltimateDefrag.

Thanks for your help. Lep dan :)

Which ones did you remove and was that because you though they might be slowing FF or was it just random selection to reduce the number of Add-ons ?

I have 31 add-ons installed and no apparent slowdown.

yeah, the amount of add-ons doesn't slow down the browsing in Firefox (even if there must be exceptions with a few specific add-ons though), just the startup.

I'm going to have to look into this.

Are you serious?  Even when you had dial-up?  I am so jealous now. :'(

Even when I had dial-up the add-ons didn't cause any issues, for the most part the add-ons once loaded are inert until required.
