The 12 Best Firefox About: Config Performance Tweaks

Sponsored Links
299w ago - Below are a few Firefox performance hacks, tweaks, and productivity enhancements that can be made via the About:config of Firefox.

To quote: Make Firefox Give Back RAM When Minimized
To enable the setting so that Firefox gives back RAM, do the following:

1) In the Firefox address bar type: about:config and then hit Enter.
2) In the "Filter" search, type: config.trim_on_minimize
3) Right click on the setting and click "toggle" so that the Value turns to "true".

After performing the above, you will need to restart the browser and Firefox will now "give back RAM" when minimized. To undo the change, perform the steps again but make sure the value turns to "false".

Check out the rest linked above!
