A Quick Way to Speed Up Firefox

Ever since Firefox reached the v1.5 mark I noticed that it wasn't as snappy as it had been. Pages took longer to render and the launch time increased. After playing around with FF 2.0 a bit this week on a couple of machines, I believe the DOM Inspector extension that is installed by default is the culprit. After removing the DOM Inspector, FF is running much better. Complex pages render much faster and the browser launches in less time.

So, if you're running Firefox and it is slow, try uninstalling the DOM Inspector extension.
