Speed up Firefox startup by optimizing the Firefox Databases - new addon

Since Firefox 3.0, bookmarks, history and most storage are kept in SQLite databases, so depending on your browsing habits it could represent some pretty large databases.

Firefox's databases become fragmented over time and I found the recent versions of FF to be slow when loading up. Since there are no managing processes checking and optimizing the database, these factors eventually result in a performance hit.

So, a good way to improve startup and some other bookmarks and history related tasks is to defragment and trim unused space from these databases.

There are two ways to do this, the first is from http://mozillalinks.org/wp/...

Where you add a line of code to the error console.

However even better is a new Firefox addon

 https://addons.mozilla.org/...

Try it, it works for me.
