Configuring Firefox Preloader is a bit tricky. Here’s how you can configure it correctly.

  • Download Firefox Preloader from Firefox Addons site and install it in Firefox.
  • Now go to the folder where Firefox is installed. (C:\\Program Files\\Mozilla Firefox by default)
  • Find the file Firefox.exe, right click it and create a shortcut preferably on your desktop (Send to desktop)
  • Now go to the Desktop and right click the shortcut –> Properties –> Shortcut
  • Under Target, append -preloader at the end of the line. The default line is:
    “C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe”
    When you append -preloader, it will become:
    “C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” -preloader
