Go to its advanced settings and set pages to cache links, then limit your cache in Firefox settings to 350MB or something close for security

Silent, silent

This is my final fit
My final bellyache

No alarms and no surprises
No alarms and no surprises please

No alarms and no surprises

I fail to see how that would increase the speed of the javascript runtime

Links on a page get cached so the page loads faster along with initial JS.

If you're worried about the speed of your own code in Firefox, you can always put in asm.js. It's a subset of JS that browsers (like Firefox) can optimize for but still runs in other browsers, since it's just JS (unlike NaCL).

Random question - I recently switched to Chrome because of an annoying problem, but kinda wanna switch back to Firefox.

The problem? Whenever I switch WiFi networks, everything logs out for no apparent reason. Yeah, it's "more secure", but it's really annoying, especially if it's just a switch between the same network. Is there a setting that can be changed to prevent this? This behavior does not happen in Chrome.

I've never had this happen. Did you google it to see if other people have the same issue?

If, as a result of the switching your IP changes, and the server checks your IP, then there is no way to overgo that.

I wish it were that easy, but I only get questionable answers that don't really help. (Examples include this and this, if not much more.)

Nope, Chrome still keeps me logged in. And it's not because of Google bias towards Google-y sites (3 tabs of GMail, 1 Google Voice, 1 Google Calendar, 1 MightyText <-> Google Account), but even other websites like Facebook, Twitter, Hotmail, etc. are logged in.

This is an agonizing problem that really affects my use of Firefox - believe me, after logging back in for 5+ sites (not mentioning the chaining of 3 Google Account logins), it gets annoying. I can live with the memory hogging Chrome if it means that I don't have to worry about getting logged out (and having to spend some time logging back in again).

Sounds like the ccookies or something similar are being cleared on Firefox. You've probably checked the Privacy settings already, or it could be something in about:config. I mostly use Chrome, even with the memory hog.

I use Chromium on Linux and Chrome on Windows and Android.
BTW for the poll : Chrome = Chromium with different logo and some proprietary extensions from Google (that you can install in Chromium anyway).
