    Most of the time Firefox slows down due to the fragmentation of profile databases.SpeedyFox is the best tool i can say to resolve that problem. Firefox uses SQLITE databases to store lots of its settings. By the time the databases grow and Firefox starts working slowly. SpeedyFox compacts those databases without loosing any data.To use it, select your profile and click the Speed Up My Firefox button. Your FireFox will come to a new Speed.

    With SpedyFox, you just need to “Speed Up My Firefox” button, after restarting Firefox you will get a fresh installation feel. Once installed, SpeedyFox automatically detects your Firefox’s default profile. If you have more than one profile, you can select the one you want to optimize from the drop-down menu. All you have to do is select the default profile that you want to optimize and hit Speed Up Firefox button.

    The optimization process can take anywhere from 5 minutes to an hour depending on how large your databases are. The whole optimization process is safe as it does not effect your history, bookmarks, passwords, etc.
