    Nope. TCP Optimizer will only tweak Windows settings. Most internet speed up tools shouldn't do anything that would affect Firefox in any direct way.

    IMHO you will not regret visiting the Broadbandreports Tweaks Forum and let those folks have a go at tweaking your settings. Be sure and visit their Rules page before posting.

    Just for general info in case others stumble across this thread. The broadbandreports tweaks site posted above is for all connections....dial-up included.

    Hi Rainwalker,

    1) Save your about:config file first
    2) Download/install/run CableNut: http://www.cablenut.com/
    3) Save in another file your about:config
    4) Compare about:config files for differences

    -- Tom

    P.S. IMHO Cablenut is better than TCP Optimizer
