To fix this I created a new about:blank style, Arctic Firefox, that is lighter while still maintaining the firefox logo goodness.
To install this you will first need to:
- Install Stylish, a plugin for Firefox. Stylish allows you to apply custom styles to web pages, or as they say “easy management of user styles.”
- Go to the Arctic Firefox page and click the ‘Load into Stylish’ button
- Click Save in the window that pops up and you’re done
Now every time you open a new tab you’ll see your custom about:blank page (assuming you have new tabs configured to open a blank page).
Now, every time you check your GMail, you have many tens of that style being loaded.
Daniel, I don’t think I get your point. If it doesn’t noticeably slow Gmail down, what is the problem?
