    first remove firefox browser? or run from commandline "swiftfox" that's it.also download the one which is named with your pc's architecture.

    Thanks for the info @Prakash. I have already tweaked FireFox.It loads pages faster for sure.
    Anyway I'll give SwiftFox a try.

    Also, Linux users should try disabling pango for Firefox in their environment. AFAIK only Ubuntu and Gentoo are doing it at the moment. This will give you a significant boost in page rendering and reduce the load put by Firefox on your system.
