i heard that , almost every time Fasterfox lite developer claimed that , Fasterfox spoilt bandwith during browsing in firefox and for that reason they developed Fasterfox lite . is it true ?
greate addon i am using it for many years , it'e better than other edition this lite edition is so good keep going :)
I just don't get it when people are complaining about this add on... there is on and off feature for that privacy thing! hmmm just make sure u have trusted anti virus... oh by the way, i just want to ask if its true that you guys can track every page i visit? thats sort of an alert to me.. can you not do that guys? i worried about bank accounts and online accounts to be hacked...
Rubbish, do not install!
if you want to lose your privacy.. install this crap
Works fine for me.
The best tool for increase the Firefox speed.
Allow anonymous statistic in advanced options?
Is sufficient disable...
Beware!!! This is a SPYWARE add-on, that now belongs to a company named Wips.com. DO NOT INSTALL this add-on, it sends that company information about every web page you visit.
I have been using this add-on for many years. Thanks for your contribution.
After trying many similar add-ons and finding close to all useless or even antagonistic, I was very surprised to find that Fasterfox Lite returned excellent results. I spent a good hour or so testing it and found that the "Optimized" setting returns the best speed gains. This is not "snake oil" like some reviews have mentioned, using the page-load timer I have seen real, quantifiable results.
As to anyone complaining about the anonymous statistics reporting, simply turn it off. It's a simple checkbox! Why all the fuss and accusations? Just about everyone and everything tries to track your activity and this program in contrast with many actually has a simple, clearly labeled option to deny it that privilege.
I've been trying to find what's causing my tabs to hang. Saw that FFL has been upgraded, downloaded the current version. After restarting, windows stopped opening. Tabs had the url, but page remained blank, icon spinning, but not opening. Restarted twice, same thing. Once I disabled the upgraded FFL, the problem stopped. sorry for me and you about this problem.
I can't understand why somes give fault appréciations in the comments, of this addon, who is the better to speed FF?!
It's not a spy: he takes anonym datas and you can turn it off in the settings!!
I use it since longtime now and it's the best, in his domain!!
Thank you very much!
Finally someone who understand it all. Thank you for your effort.
Everything you said is true. If you have some feedback on what we can improve, let us know on our firstname.lastname@example.org mail.
Already warned,and I warn as well:
there is no need to be aware, we don't do anything bad. You can get great functionality for free. If you are referring to the data. You can turn them off in the settings. And we don't collect any harmful data. All of them are completely anonymous.
It didn't improve my web browsing however, it did spy on me. Make up your own mind.
don't worry about the spy you. For one thing it is completely anonymous and second you can turn in off in the settings. Please feel free to do that.
All the best
A must have addon! Do yourself a favor and disable the anonymous statistics from the addon options if you are worried about privacy. It was the first thing I did, to save on bandwidth. Is there a nighty or beta branch available? You should consider adding options (with disclaimer) to disable safe browsing and click to play. Thanks for the improved development on an abandoned app and keep up the great work!
P.S. In 3.9.9Lite at the least, the author addon's homepage lists "https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/9148" which returns a 404.
Argh! As if the snake oil performance tweaking of Fasterfox wasn't bad enough, this is just the same thing but with user tracking added for monitization.
don't worry about the tracking. For one thing it is completely anonymous and second you can turn in off in the settings. Please feel free to do that.
All the best

I love it, works great and FAST MAINLY!
I use Firefox 4.0, and currently using Fasterfox Lite 3.9.6, and this is a very useful extension, doing everything it says, and well - but on updating to version 3.9.7 Firefox will not start, giving an exception, and I've had to remove 3.9.7 and install 3.9.6 with all versions up to 3.9.6 being fine.
Crashes Firefox on browser exit and throwing exceptions on browser start...
Hello, we unfortunately shipped version with some kind of debug messages turned on. Please migrate to any newer version, where the problem is fixed. Thanks
Thank you very much for allowing user control over data collection. That's an honorable step forward!

You are exactly the one, to who is this add-on made for.
juste un petit bravo... mais si on pouvait finir de traduire les menus, merci...
Excellent addon. Thanks for the effort.
I have a question. Is it possible to change the settings of the preset options? I am using "turbo charged" but I want to reset the "override automatic cache management" to 500MB instead of 75MB. I know I can use "custom" option but I don't know the other settings of "turbo charged".
Thanks in advance!
