Uh oh ... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Anything I did wrong ? Or anything new ?
I saw no change in the load time, so I opened the task manager before launching the shortcut with -preloader : I see Firefox appear about ten seconds (the time it takes to load), and then disappear.
Version 1.1.1 of the add-on is installed in Firefox (51.0.1, Windows Vista).
I obtained a better result with MinimizedToTray Revived, 1.3.2

This still works on 32 bit Slackware. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I don't know about the 64 bit version, but all I did was add it to XFCE's "Sessions and Startup" dialog, and then disable session-restore in Firefox and it starts up in the background just like it's supposed to.

Useful add-on but... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Fail on user session load on every browser start. So it opened the dialog to recover session, but it's not good.

Works but only the first run Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Developer should add -silent in the description and start minimized.

I use an autohotkey script that detects when I close Firefox and waits 15 secs then runs the shortcut -preloader -silent so I open Firefox fast all the time not just the first time.

what about HKLM/Run,and what about firefox -silent Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I haven't test it yet for I dont reboot often

but will it work as well when start through

and what's the different between
"firefox -preloader"
"firefox -silent"

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wow! What a speed increase. My primary PC took 3-4 seconds to load Firefox after a cold load and 5-6 seconds on my backup PC. Installed the preloader and now it takes 1.2 seconds to load on my primary PC and 1.1 on my backup PC.
Great work.


It starts, then it disappears Rated 2 out of 5 stars


I had the idea to run "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\\firefox.exe -preloader" from the console, and the following is what resulted: INCLUDE ScriptlessBGThumbs: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND) [nsIXPCComponents_Utils.import]" nsresult: "0x80520012 (NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://noscript/content/ScriptlessBGThumbs.js :: TOP_LEVEL :: line 3" data: no] undefined Failed to find nss3 in installed directory, checking system paths.

Optimize the preloader Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect. I changed it to "Run minimized" and added -silent to the command line: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\Firefox.exe -preloader -silent
Now Users do not see anything when the computer starts and are just amazed how fast Firefox loads.


Muito bom Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Só uma observação em Windows 64bits ficaria assim:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\Firefox.exe -preloader

Very nice add on just wondering how you can install it in Windows 8

Good work Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on does what it says. Well done by the developer.

Super! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice work! I do like such addons that increase startup time or perfomance. Is there similar addon for thunderbird?

Windows 8, Firefox 26

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

works great with linux

startup-time reduced from 7.5 sec to 3.8 sec (both after a fresh start)

using firefox 25.0-1 and linux 3.12.0-1

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It works for me on Linux: FF 22 running on Slackware 13.1. I use the XFCE desktop and all I had to do was add it to the autostart list in Settings > Sessions and Startup. It does what I wanted and doesn't seem to interfere with anything. It's a good plugin.

Not working Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It is not working with firefox version later 13.0. After the addon was installed and after making the target field changes, the firefox is not loading at all.
