Fine Tune FireFox

Make firefox load a little faster

By compressing the DLLs and executables.

1. Download UPX from

2. Unzip upx.exe into your Firefox installation folder which is normally C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox3.

3. Make sure Firefox is not running then shell to a command prompt in the Firefox installation directory.

4. Type in the following command in a single line and hit return:

for %v in (*.exe *.dll components\*.dll plugins\*.dll) do upx “C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox3\%v”

5. If on some later occasion you want to unpack the files, just type in the command above but add the decompression switch “-d” after “do upx.”
