DO NOT INSTALL!!! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

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.
It is clearly stated on their privacy policy, although sadly few people care to read that: "WIPS.COM'S EXTENSION SERVICE COLLECTS AND STORES INFORMATION ABOUT THE WEB PAGES YOU VIEW. IN SOME CASES, INFORMATION COLLECTED BY THE EXTENSION SERVICE MAY BE PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE". And also: "When you use the Extension Service, we collect information about the websites you visit, the searches you perform using search engines and when you use the "search" function of the Extension Service, the ways in which you use various Extension Service features (including whether the Extension Service is still installed on your computer), and the pages you view"

Stay away!!!!

Magnificent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been using this add-on for many years. Thanks for your contribution.

Pleasantly surprised Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

Great add-on!

Tabs Don't Open Rated 1 out of 5 stars

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.

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.

You can turn it off

Hi,
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.

BK Rated 1 out of 5 stars

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.
