You can use the SpeedyFox in Orca?

I tried to run it but could not find a "Profile" file in the apps folder. Any idea which file might be the Orca version of FF profile file?

FasterFox is only for Requires Firefox 1.5 - 2.0 so won't work with Orca.
I shall test SpeedyFox shortly...

OK, start SpeedyFox, for profile choose "custom", then browse to:

"C:\Documents and Settings\<USERNAME>\Application Data\Orca Profiles\.default\mozdata\UserData\"

or for Vista / Win7 (please correct me if I am wrong):

"C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\Orca Profiles\.default\mozdata\UserData\"

Note that Orca must be closed for optimisation to occur.

FasterFox 3.7.0 and FasterFox Lite 3.8.2 do both work - but you have to restart Orca for changes to take effect.

EDIT: xGrind - will you please stop deleting your posts, it looks like I'm talking to myself :-/

So which works best or should we run both? Do they work?

Which file do I attach? What is the file name?

It is looking for a folder not a file name - also there was a little error in my post and I have corrected the path.

WOW FasterFox screwed everything up for me. Had to completely uninstall and re-install Orca.

Really? Worked fine for me, although I'm using XP.
Did you not backup the folder first...?

Silly Kudos. Of course I did not back up. It worked on single pages but not on opening 20 tabs. Whole browser just froze up.
