    Tweaking Firefox 21 on Windows 8

    If you have already tweaked 8 to your heart's content AND you use Firefox perhaps because you favor its Add-ons and Themes here are three suggestions:


    1) For SSD users, run Firefox exclusively on RAM cache. Speed is not the issue; ultimately it will spare hundreds of GB writes to the SSD that will only ALL be deleted eventually anyway (this is much wear foregone):

    Should you adopt this change, use the 'Cache Status' Add-on to confirm, display and control Firefox's cache usage in the Add-on Bar:

    2) Use Stratiform 3.1 to adjust the interface to your liking:

    3) Then add a light-grey gradient theme to greatly enhance the visibility of the Firefox's toolbars. See attached image. Obviously (2) and (3) are matters of taste; nonetheless, Firefox goes places Chrome and IE can't in this regard:

    Good luck!
