How to Speed up Firefox 3.5

Firefox 3.5 was a very disappointing piece of browser indeed because it is a resource hugger and it is slow to respond. I tried several solutions like this and a host of other tweaks that improved it a little bit. But I was not satisfied with it. It is really very slow and sometimes it actually freezes up soon as all those Java Scripts, Flash content and annoying Advertising comes up on the screen.

This is what I did to speed up my Firefox 3.5. I simply installed Adblock Plus and Flashblock. Adblock Plus disables all ads on a site while Flashblock disables all flash content on a site by default. If you wish to enable flash on a particular site all you need to do is to enable flash on that site only. That way you can choose which site to display Flash content.
