Using Fire Tune

1. After downloading & installing the tool, open it.

2. First of all, back up the default settings of Firefox by clicking on the 'Create backup of configuration' button. This will enable us to revert back to the previous settings if the results of optimization are not satisfactory.

3. Now, you will have to select the speed of your PC (CPU & RAM) & the Internet.

To find out the amount of RAM & CPU that you have, click on Start ---> Right click on My Computer ---> Click on Properties. (Or you can press Windows Logo key + Pause) Now, in the 'System' area, you can view the CPU speed in MHz/GHz & RAM in MB/GB.

To check your Internet speed, read this article.

4. Now, select the appropriate combination of the speed of your PC & of your Internet connection, using the table given below :





1.5 GHz +


Less than 1.5 GHz


512 MB +


Less than 512 MB

Internet Connection

300 KB +

100-200 KB

10-25 KB

Note : Here, KB stands for kilobytes.

Now, close Mozilla Firefox if it is open & then click on 'Tune it'. And there you have it, you have just optimized Mozilla Firefox through Fire Tune. Enjoy the speedier performance of Mozilla Firefox!

How to check the speed of your Internet Connection

Sometimes, you may want to check the speed of your Internet connection.

Here is a list of the websites that you can use to check the speed of your internet connection :

Speed Test
Bandwidth Place
My Speed
Test my Speed

After the test finishes, you will be given your Internet speed in kilobits (Kb). You will have to convert it into kilobytes (KB) to know the actual speed. You can check this article for the difference between kilobits & kilobytes.

Note :

While running the speed test, do not use the Internet for any other purpose. This is because the websites generally check your Internet speed by simply downloading & uploading a file. The speed of this download/upload is considered as the speed of the Internet connection. As such, if you use the Internet for other purposes like downloading, surfing, etc. while testing the Internet connection, the speed test will get a lower share of your Internet connection, thereby affecting the results of the Internet speed check giving inaccurate results.
