Firefox Preloader is a lightweight software application developed to fulfil a single goal: to help you improve Firefox startup time by preloading parts of Firefox into memory.

It comes in handy in case your web browser takes a lot of time to load, especially if you have installed extensions, themes, and other plugins.

Non-obtrusive interface and simple method of deployment

Firefox Preloader runs quietly in the system tray until called upon when it reveals only a few configuration settings you can tweak with ease.

The program gives you the possibility to launch the web browser directly from the system tray by simply performing a double-click operation on the utility’s icon. Since it is able to preload certain Firefox items, it speeds up the loading process.

Customize browser settings and easy-to-handle GUI

Other notable characteristics worth mentioning allow you to configure the browser’s Internet options, reload the web browser, and make the application display notifications before the loading process.

Since it does not require much computer knowledge to work with this utility, even rookies can master the entire process without having to consult a help manual or view online tutorials.

A last assessment

During our testing we have noticed that Firefox Preloader carries out the loading process very quickly, and no errors showed up throughout the entire process. As it would be expected from such a small utility, it remains light on system resources, so it does not burden the overall performance of the computer, nor interfere with other programs’ functionality.

To sum things up, Firefox Preloader seems to be the right choice in case you are looking for an easy-to-use tool which helps you enhance Firefox startup time. It can be easily configured and installed by all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
