This can be done by typing to about:config, right click at any place on window and opt New, Integer. Then you type browser.cache.memory.capacity, select OK , make an entry 65536 in the box and again click OK. For speedy loading of Firefox, you should again write to about:config, come to network.http.pipelining.maxrequests, thereby changing the default setting from 4 to 8, the highest one. The time which browser takes to start on the information received should be made to 0 by typing nglayout.initial along with paint.delay after choosing new and then integer. You can also delete all the temporary folders which are in use to increase the speed of firefox. You can also uncheck the checkmark from the “automatically check for Firefox updates” and you check the updates at regular intervals as per your convenience.
