I recently asked about ways to benchmark Firefox because of how
slow I found Firefox to be on Fedora 7. It was almost unusably slow,
prompting me to switch to Konqueror as much as possible.
However I have found a short tutorial which after following the speed
seems to at least be on par which my laptop (which has half the
processing speed, and a slower, IDE hard drive, and slower memory)
Assuming I haven't encountered some freak situation, it may be
necessary to consider changing the default Firefox settings, one of
which is IPV6 DNS. I have zero issues against IPV6 myself, but if it
helps make Firefox useful, by all means.
Again, if I can provide any objective metrics, please let me know.
