Songbird/Nightingale: Improving search performance

Only just recently, I complained about an everlasting performance problem.

Shortly after writing this, I stumbled upon this nice tweak (thanks michaelvandeborne!):

  1. Click on File | New Tab
  2. Enter about:config, then promise that you’ll be careful.
  3. Enter songbird.dbengine.cacheSize
  4. Increase the value. Start with 5000.
    You might also try to increase or lower it a little and see if the performance increases any further.
