There are better programs out there and if you want to tweak about:config works very well.

Well i think you should all stop wining about letting someone help me tweak firefox (when i wouldn't have a clue how to). Good program, but in my opinion, FireTune is better as its more user friendly (e.g. choose computer/connection speed and click tune).

Enabled options like pipelining that are intentionally disabled, as they can bring web servers to their knees.

While it may speed up YOUR firefox browsing experience, it's also creating potentiall DoS attacks on web servers.

Avoid this, and all other Firefox tweakers for this reason...

bad idea. tweakers don't need external applications to modify user text (js) files. Notepade works just fine thanks

You need a program for that? All those so called tweaks can be done via about:config.

The WinXP menus is nothing more than a simple addition userChrome.css, which is not a tweak but a skin adjustments.

Looked interesting but couldn't get it to apply any changes. It always wanted to go to C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator...

But I have Firefox installed under my personal name.

I installed Firefox especially to try this tweaker as it intrigues me and I'd heard Firefox was a fast browser. Unfortunately Firefox isn't quite as fast as I'd been led to believe and I'll be uninstalling it. However with regards to the tweaker I think it's very good. I think it needs work and I'd like to see an option to move your Cache to ram. But it's a nice piece of software if you're using Firefox.

Hmm, actually I think this has something to do with OS dependence. I downloaded this program in home running Windows XP and ran perfectly as mentioned by author. I tried to use it in office with Windows 2000 and got the problems that some of the other reviewers have mentioned.

May be the author can comment on that, but most probably it was meant only for Windows XP.

What a total piece of crap. It wouldn't even open. Better off using the extensions that really work.

It is some funny tweaks they have included in the program. I don't think it is very usefull in this state, maybe in a later state ?

@holbrooke + FundeMentaL

You need to install the Net framework v1.1 are you sure you have done this ?

Worked fine no probs..

But I didn't find any tweaks that I found usefull :( There's a lot of tricks on the mozilla site that I have found usefull fx to optimize the speed - these function should be integreated I think.. Can't see the big need for those tweaks inclueded here - so fare!
