[arch-general] Is preload really working ??

preload works for what it is made.

It is not made to speed up firefox startup time.
Firefox loads a bunch of sqlite files in your /home. This and other
things might explain your slow startup time of firefox. 

One of the ways to speed up firefox is to put your ~/.mozilla in a tmpfs
(doing it the right way, else you loose your data). This have been
discussed somewhere I think.
How else ?

Please complain about Firefox for its slow startup time and not about
preload for not speeding it up.

Try chromium if you want quick startup time ;-)
