    I don't suggest the tweak they do of; Set the value of browser.xul.error_pages.enabled to "true" for me this was more annoying than helpful

    "D:\Misc Programs\FireFox\firefox.exe" /Prefetch:1

    or whatever your directory is. Just add the /Prefetch:1 to the end of your shortcut

    Loads Firefox faster by keeping the required .dlls in memory. You have to launch firefox once, then on subsequent launches it'll be a much quicker start.

    If you reboot often, this probably isn't worth it, but ymmv.

    Type about:config in the address bar, modify browser.cache.memory capacity to however many KBs you wish.
