    Thanks, SK! Thanks a lot to shyangs.

    It’s working to significantly speed up loading time of my extensions-laden Firefox 3.6.

    In my case, I copied the unpacked DelFxExtLocal file into the AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Extensions directory in my user folder from where I ran the executable.

    I couldn’t open it under Profiles, but then I’m my PC’s sole user.

    I’m looking forward to test the updated profile on my portable Firefox when I have the time.

    More power to TechGravy and to you, Mr. Wong!
