    firefox preloader

    Starts Fx in one to two seconds on my PC (loads 20+mb). Only problem: requires Menu/file/exit - to unload memory. More info and download: http://matt.sixxgate.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=92

    Plans and ToDos

    1. Fix any found bugs... (this should always be a first in any software)
    2. Improve preloading so that more of Firefox is loaded into memory

    Thanks. This was a feature on Mozilla Suite that I have missed in Firefox.

    I dumped it when I figured out that it was taking longer to load Firefox from the system tray than it was from the quick launch tray.

    If someone else is having better luck, I would be curious about your configuration.

    I works. I loads in one to two seconds like I said on my machine. I have Fx icon in my quick launch as well. 17mb VS 0mb loaded - well of course, 17mb is already loaded and should load Fx faster.
