    (I got this from DP forums, but is is quite usefull)

    Hi,
    I tested and it worked, that's the steps you should do (Working on version 2 & 3):

    Type:
    about:config (no spaces)

    In the address line and click enter, you'll get a small alert and next step will be to click on the "I'll be careful, I promise!"

    Now on the image you'll see above you need to right click with the mouse and then New -> Boolean

    Example:
    [​IMG]

    Now you'll have the New Bolean Value, you should type this:
    config.trim_on_minimize (again, no spaces - just as it is)

    Example:
    [​IMG]

    click OK, and chose TRUE.
    Now initialization firefox (close it and re-open)

    The result: saving tons of memory and will make the browser faster.


    Example:
    [​IMG]

    To this:
    [​IMG]

    It worked from me, I hope it will work for you.

    P.S - I didn't knew where to post it since there is no Mozilla forum.

    Good luck and let me know if it helped you!

    yup its really good, i already saw this on dp,i saw a little difference, but still a tiny difference is worth it for a minute or two doing that

    i dont get why firefox doesnt automatically use that setting
