firefoxFirefox has got a nice feature which downloads all of those pages which thinks may be useful to its users in order to open them quickly upon request. Of course, this is one of those features which is well appreciated, since it is supposed to help people improve their Internet experience. But in an Internet world where almost everybody has got a cheap ADSL connection, well, this prefetching thing doesn’t make a lot of sense. Furthermore, Prefetching uses a lot, really a lot of resources from your computer, and this may result in  a poor PC performance. If you want to disable it, here is a simple trick to follow.

  1. Type about:config in the Address bar and press Enter.
  2. A message saying “I’ll be carefull. I promise!” should appear. Click onthe button to confirm.
  3. Type network.prefetch-next in the Filter field.
  4. Double click on the item to change it into false.
