1. Managing The Cache:
A large number of BROWSER experts have recommended over the past few years that by clearing the cache of the browser, the users are able to speed up their browser. However, the slowness generally occurs when the size of the cache stored in your Firefox browser gets too big which causes a drastic decline in the performance of the Mozilla Firefox browser. So, to clear the cache of your browser, you have to follow these steps. Firstly, click on the OPTIONS button from the menu of your browser. Then, you have to click on the ADVANCED button. After that, you have to click on the NETWORK tab. Now, under the CACHED WEB CONTENT section, you simply have to click on the CLEAR NOW button. Along with that, you have to click the CLEAR NOW button under the OFFLINE WEB CONTENT AND USER DATA section.

Doing this will definitely remove all kinds of sluggishness in your browser and in a fraction of a few seconds, you will experience a speed boost in your browser.
3. Cutting Down On The Bloat:
Many times, it happens that the users install so many applications either on their PCs or on their browsers. The shocking fact is that they rarely use the majority of those installed applications which do nothing except slowing down the PC as well as the browser in which, those applications are installed. So, to speed up your browser, you just have to remove all those applications which are known as the ADD-ONS in your Firefox browser. You can do this by going to the OPTIONS menu in the Firefox browser. After that, you have to click on the EXTENSIONS tab. Now, you will see all the add-ons which you have installed on your Firefox browser. So, now you either have to click on the DISABLE button or the REMOVE button located at the next of every extension, which you want to remove from your browser in order to increase your browsing speed.
4. Installing Two Extensions:
Till now, we were telling you to remove all the unnecessary extensions. But now, we recommend you to install two extensions in your browser which are named as AUTO UNLOAD TAB and SPEED TWEAKS. Installing the AUTO UNLOAD TAB extension will close all the inactive tabs in your browser and thus, will free up your CPU's memory. Along with that, you will also be provided an easy access to all the hidden flags of your browser, which are responsible for speeding up the performance of your browser with the help of the SPEED TWEAKS extension.
