Mozilla Reveals List of Add-Ons that Slow Firefox's Performance - April 5, 2011, 08:23 AM

Unfortunately, Ad Block Plus is #12 - but I'm still not going to disable it. Way too useful.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...ance/#addon-11

Slow Performing Add-ons

Add-ons provide many useful features and functions, but they can also cause Firefox to become slower. Some add-ons can even slow Firefox to a crawl and make it difficult to use for regular web browsing. If you think add-ons might be the reason Firefox is lethargic, check the list below for some of the biggest bottlenecks. And remember, for best performance you should disable add-ons that you no longer use regularly.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527

It says....

"The following add-ons have the most impact on how long it takes Firefox to start up."


I'm not really too worried about the few extra seconds it make take to start up. Adblock plus more than makes up for it.

I also run ghoster, which blocks tracking cookies.
