  • Many thanks to the developer of FasterFox for your hard and great work with this app. It's a great experience to have appwork as advertised. I haven't found any downside/neg.effects so far. Almost too good to be true but seeing is believing. Apparently the Mozilla Community was unable to accomplish this apps features.... yet 1 dev was!? Great job and thanks for your work and making my life better! 10 stars! ;)

    Developer response

    thanks pasky
    mozillia wont do it because if you punch in a 'extremely high or rediculiously low' number it will mess up the system, but this addons been grandfathered in and the last and only SAFE and useable addon that was not stolen from me.
    glad it made your computers internet 'thru firefox' faster and your FF performance work also

  • особенно помогает бороться с рекламой всесте с noscript.

  • OK, I understand.
    Is it possible to add some checkbox to Options that will enable/disable left & middle clicks to prevent problems for non windows/linx users?
    ===============================================
    My previous review:
    Particularly, I feel the difference and timer allows to measure the load time.
    But I have one small proposal:
    Currently the right click popups a menu with 3 menuitems:
    Options, Hide Timer and Clear Cache.
    Is it possible to call Clear Cache with left click and Options - with Middle click?

    Developer response

    would require a whole new set of stuff for me to program, click box's click area ect ect, you can actually made it change everything if you really wanted to

    hide timer you can turn off in settings of the 'option' and to remove fasterfox icon you just take it off the custom toolbar
    to clear cache its a keyboard configure


    i looked further into this, the way i have it programed i would require to rewrite whole bunch just to get the option to do this menu

  • Very fast loading pages...

  • its good

  • hi thanks for this great addon I suggest you divide the program into several one forTweak Network , and one for Block Popups ....because users would be interested only for Tweak Network not in Block Popups or vice versa . it would be more convenient and you can win more audience and popularity you can name your program faster download or download accelerator for exemple

  • Hello,

    Love this add-on, its really improved page load times.

    With Firefox 29.0 Australis coming-up in about 4 or 5 weeks, the add-on bar is going to be removed. Will you be issuing an update so we can move the timer.

    Developer response

    I've tried moving the timer but mozilla won't allow the script it uses or calls on into a top bar I'll keep trying to make it move, if enough people bother mozilla I think they will make it optional or built in for us. I hate tabs on top, I like my tabs near the top of my current page and they are roving the ability to override this

  • Great addon!!! but it's conflicting with another addon i use to enable full buffering of youtube vids. some vids, not all. please add an option to exclude webpages and/or flash video. better if able to temporarily exclude a page

    Developer response

    I wish there was a way to add exceptions or not to use on a page. Fasterfox changes how Firefox uses internet directly so this would not be possible. Besides the prefetch (has white lists ) this would not work. I know YouTube has problems with Adblock plus or video keepers. My way past that was to click on the timeline to get the video to load. Hope you enjoy.

  • Fasterfox is cool.

  • Firefox on steroids, or rather on turbochargers...

  • Simple and effective at tweaking web page downloading. Many tweaks here such as cache, rendering, pipelining etc. Also, includes the capability to customize settings or use preset settings!
    I say that this is 'must have' utility for optimizing firefox.

    Developer response

    glad you enjoy it also =) helps me do work faster and load stuff super fast

  • I my last review I complained that Faster Fox was causing hanging and odd Tab behavior. I have discovered that the problem was not Faster Fox but two NVidia plug ins which were auto installed when NVidia was auto updated. I was unaware of the installation of the plug in. I disabled the plug ins and will remove them and all is back to normal including a great reduction in memory usage and high GPU fan speed. If you are experiencing similar problems and have an NVidia GPU look for these plug ins which are useless unless you have a 3D monitor. I do not. Thanks to the developer of FasterFox and my sincere apology. Jim

    Developer response

    no problem jim, i had giant problems with firefox loading due to unneeded 'Windows player, and itunes loaders, found out that when i disabled these i could load much faster =)

  • IS


    WOW

    Developer response

    Glad you like it like the other million users

  • Must Have.. Fastest...

  • Where is it? I downloaded it, but can't find the app. Is there a tutorial?

    Developer response

    go to {tools} >addons > Fasterfox > {OPTIONS} or email me @ my support email address for further help =)

  • Excellent add-on.My ff is very fast.

  • not sure if it was my problem or the addon but after i installed it and restarted my firerox it looked like it takes longer to load the pages. i mean it takes longer to look up the page then when itlooks it up it loads, so i have to wait to firefox to find teh page then it will load better maybe? so ill give it a chance and let it stay there for a lil while see if it gets better, but so far no good....

    Developer response

    same thing is happening to me, but its not all the addons fault, more and more sites are adding bandwith protection or 'ddos' protection due to how the world works, this addon sometimes comes off to these 'guards' as a ddoser due to how many connections it can make 'up to infinity if you choose' i have my settings on to about 20 pipelining and 40 connections at once, and sometimes sites wont work, so i run about 4 pipes and 10 connections now

  • I've been trying this add-on for several days, and it has made a big difference in the speed of my surfing, including the loading of images at sites such as flickr, FB, my blogs and venues.

    The add-on default setting seemed to be turbo, so I decided to try courteous and then the next setting upwards, and they both made a difference. I'm now using that setting between turbo and courteous (can't remember the name). Will donate when I can. Thanks for all of your help.

  • There appears to be no way to reply to a developer's reply to a review, so I'm starting a new one.

    Yes, it does do what I said in the earlier review. On highlighting a word, an annoying box appeared with a definition that apparently came from Wiki. There were also little icons for Google and three other unrelated sites. I initially went to the Mozilla forum asking what was causing this annoyance. After some back and forth on the forum, someone pointed out that it was Fasterfox causing the problem. I disabled Fasterfox, and the problem vanished. Direct causality.

    Developer response

    It's hard to understand what's happening, my addon has no way in any reason to do a (wiki) search, however if you have prefetch combined with another addon then you might get this problem. Email me directly and I'll send you a donater version (timer fixed)

  • The addon is fine, but the developer really gives an immature impression and outright lies (Fasterfox can't be faster than its forks because the settings are the same). AFAIK previous versions of Fasterfox didn't have that "don't copy" bull in its description so it defaulted to CC-BY-SA license which permits forks, and so the author can't really sue anyone who used his code retroactively. Also, "legal action" doesn't go together with atrocious grammar ;D

  • Great addon but I go back to version 3.9.5 to have the counter working
