TenFourFox - Really Slow

When I made the Tiger Transition recently, I was really impressed with TenFourFox. Page loads were similar to LWK, and the webpages were really responsive!

However, with a few weeks use, TenFourFox is really, really slow now. I find myself using Camino more and more. I have @Altemose's/@eyoungren's tweaks installed, yet it's still really slow. It was never like this before, I don't know what's happened.

So, what are some good ways to speed up TenFourFox? Also, anyone else had this issue?

    I saw improvement with Leopard 10.58.

    I found Little Snitch and a selective blocking of many third party domains solved the problem of speed.

    Where are the links to Altemose's and eyoungren's tweaks? I might take a look at that too.
