    FireTune for Mozilla Firefox v1.x was developed for an easy and fast optimization of your browsing experience with Firefox. It is based on a collection of popular and well working optimization settings used and tested by the experts. Usually you have to optimize Firefox manually, which can be time consuming and difficult for the novice user. FireTune helps you here - it includes all the performance optimizations. The only thing you must do is: make your selection. FireTune does the work for you.
    FireTune - The easy optimizer and tuner for Firefox v1.x

    What does FireTune do?

    According to your specific computer speed and internet connection speed, FireTune will optimize several internal settings of Firefox for better performance. FireTune does NOT modify the Firefox executable, or any other Firefox binary file. Everything can be undone easily provided you saved your original profile configuration file with FireTune's profile backup feature before.
    Trust me - it rocks

    I just configured mine, and yes it does load a lot faster. It doesn't seem very accurate though. You just decide if you would describe you connection and computer as being fast or not. I put fast for both. I assumed you'd have to enter how much memory you had, your exact connection speed etc etc.

    Basically, for mine I chose fastest for both options and checked every box there is.

    I'm guessing once it's been tweeked, it can be uninstalled?

    yeah you can uninstall it as it just changes the config files.

    it says down the bottom, it classifies a fast pc as something > 1.5Ghz and 512Mb, and a fast connection is DSL, cable etc

    didnt notice much of an improvement on mine. maybe id got lucky and set it up right myself
