I'm pretty sure MacUpdate has a policy against developers "reviewing" their own software, and from previous memory, I do believe software has been removed from the site for attempting to "game the system." If the software is good, people will rate it accordingly after use. Tooting your own horn seems desperate and crass... not to mention I'm sure a lot of people will pass this software up based simply on your questionable self promotion.

I've discovered an add-on that outdoes SpeedyFox by a lightyear; it's called Speedfox and it works automatically....once installed, it doesn't require any special attention. It's available at Mozilla's FF add on page. Been using it for the past week w/ FF 9(Aurora) and have been experiencing absolutely no slowdowns whatsoever. Definitely worth checking out!

Firefox DOES respond faster using SpeedyFox. I keep SF in my dock, right next to Firefox. Offering the option of a menu-bar toggle to invoke SF would be nice.

Seems to work if you use speedyfox each time you open firefox. If you keep speedyfox in your applications folder then you use up as much time finding it, starting it, push the speed up firefox button the push the run firefox button. Takes as long as just starting firefox to begin with.

Depending on your browsing activity we recommend optimizing your profile once in 1-2 weeks.

I'm back again. Please (the developer), change it to OS 10.5 and up, not OS 10.4 and up. Doesn't work in 10.4 BTW, please don't rate yourself with the 5 stars.

Seems to reduce or eliminate the frequency of the SPOD I normally get with lots of tabs open in FF. YMMV.

This seems to be an sqlite vacuum thing: http://blog.opencomponentry.com/2009/11/09/script-to-vacuum-os-x-sqlite-databases/ That will take care of all the sqlite databases (will speed up Mail and iPhoto as well as Firefox)

Of course, the obvious test is to measure the startup times of Firefox before and after running this app. I expect there will be differences among machines depending on the extent of browsing history etc. Some independent test data would be useful for people to decide whether to d/l and use or not.
