That a lot of good full time Linux users have Hall Monitor syndrome.

This tutorial will go through speeding up and hardening Mozilla Firefox 24.6.0, which is the current version from the patches directory. Since Web Browsers and other Network-Aware Applications communicate with the outside world, it makes sense to spend time locking down/hardening these applications.
