"D:\Misc Programs\FireFox\firefox.exe" /Prefetch:1
or whatever your directory is. Just add the /Prefetch:1 to the end of your shortcut
What does that do?
Loads Firefox faster by keeping the required .dlls in memory. You have to launch firefox once, then on subsequent launches it'll be a much quicker start.
If you reboot often, this probably isn't worth it, but ymmv.
Type about:config in the address bar, modify browser.cache.memory capacity to however many KBs you wish.
In about:config, set network.http.pipelining and network.http.pipelining.firstrequest to True.
