Simple Trick to Make Firefox Run Faster

There are tons of ways to make Firefox runs faster. One of the ways is to turn off the tabs animation so the opening and closing of tabs will be immediate and doesn’t take up much memory.

In Firefox, open a new tab and type “about:config” in the address bar.

Search for “browser.tabs.aimate” and double click to change the value to “false”.


Close the tab. That’s it.
