    I think for most broadband users getting Fasterfox http://fasterfox.mozdev.org/ and placing it on Optimized would be the best choice for improved speeds with little hassle and not as much strain on servers as Turbo Charged would cause. I would also try enabling the Enhanced Prefetching checkbox to show a lot of loading improvement for past-seen sites.

    Hey everyone, prior to geestar's post about improving the Firefox loading, how would I know if am using a bandwidth? I know this is a pretty stupid question but hey, am a newbie.. And what if you're using a dial-up? (Am not using dial-up)will this affect the speed?

    By the way, Am using cable connection..

    Pls reply, I really appreciate it. THANKS! :D

    Bon Echo is somewhat of a code name.....uh, sorta like Longhorn before it was Vista. If you want more info on it just let me know I will post it.

    I also could not use some of my extensions (I guess I should of posted that you might loose them) but im ok with that as I tend to test them all and do not use them.

    @-Schwaber-

    You use bandwith everytime you access the internet.

    Maybe somehow someway when firefox updated your firewall may have blocked firefox from connect to the internet. Check your firewall to check.

    Also, here are previous versions of firefox. Post back and let me know if everything is working.
