Do you have a problem with Firefox running slow and want to make it fast without re-installation? You've tried uninstalling the extension & toolbars, deleted cookies and temporary files, cleared up the file download queue and disabled the background check for software updates and still nothing seems faster. Here's a solution that Amit has suggested:

Step 1: Start Firefox and export your bookmarks as a file on your hard-drive (we'll need them later).
Step 2: Type firefox.exe - P in the Run box of Windows.
Step 3: Click the Create Profile button without making any modifications to your existing profile (which is normally called "default")

Now when you Start Firefox in the new profile, you are very likely to be impressed with the speed.
