Fasterfox Lite 3.9.9Lite.1-signed
Fasterfox Lite: Performance and network tweaks for Firefox, without the Enhanced Prefetching. This is a fork from the original "Fasterfox".
About this Add-on
Lite does not mean less performance, it is just a reference to the removal of the obtrusive Enhanced Prefetching ability in Fasterfox. Enhanced Prefetching was removed for this Lite version because it wastes a lot of server bandwidth and causes unnecessary server load.
Fasterfox Lite comes with pre-configured tweaks to improve the browsing speed of Firefox when using most broadband internet connections. Fasterfox Lite will speed up your web browsing right out of the box with no assembly required. People who complain that Firefox is slow obviously do not have Fasterfox Lite installed. (Actual speed improvements may vary depending on the desired settings that are used and the presented testing situation.
Fasterfox Lite allows you to easily tweak many network and rendering settings such as simultaneous connections, pipelining, cache and initial paint delay. Unique to this Lite version are included options for SSL Pipelining, timer-based content reflows, UI Responsiveness, Link Prefetching, IPv6 DNS lookups, and by default the Page Load Timer is disabled. If you want to manually change the "about:config" settings, then the Fasterfox Lite preset must first be saved to the "Custom" setting. This is to prevent the configurations from being different from a selected preset's settings.

How does the analytics work?
Registration of new user of extension
We provide analytics of Active users and downloads for our partners and for our extensions. So anytime a user downloads and install the extension, it will automatically get an unique GUID , which looks similar to this: a576d785-b2d3-4534-81a2-2692f74108dc
GUID (or UUID) is an acronym for 'Globally Unique Identifier' (or 'Universally Unique Identifier'). It is a 128-bit integer number used to identify resources. The term GUID is generally used by developers working with Microsoft technologies, while UUID is used everywhere else. The GUID is completely randomally assigned to the extension.
Check for update
Once a week an extension is checking for updates for configurations file to our servers.
