Disable Tab Animations In Firefox 4

The swishing tab animations in Firefox are pretty and all, but if you’d rather your computer concentrate on actual page loading rather than eye candy, there’s a very simple about:config fix.

To disable tab animations, just type about:config in your address bar, hit enter, and search for browser.tabs.animate. Double click on it so that the value reads false, and close about:config. From then on, tabs will open and close simply by appearing and disappearing, without any extra animations slowing it down.
