Well, now you have a place to come to, to ask if these "improvements" are worth your time, and trouble, which should help reduce the time you have to spend cleaning up your "mess".
I am constantly doing things to my PC to make it go faster, look better, do more amazing things etc. and then have to spend even more time trying to undo the mess I made.
Don't knock System Restore.
I know people think using System Restore is pathetic but boy has it come in handy...
As far as the speed issue goes, read this thread on Pipelining Firefox:
a firefox user, out of blind faith, coz I don't understand why they say it browses faster that IE, coz it doesn't in my experience and it takes about 20 times longer to load

Too much work for me.
Thing is, I resist a lot of betas but some like the firefox ones I just can't. I discovered (you probably know this) the following, which often works, that you can save the .xpi extension and rename it a .zip file, unzip it and open the install.rdf file with notepad and you should find a line like "<em:minVersion>1.0</em:minVersion>
" where you can increase the max version number above your current firefox version. Then put the file back in the zip file and rename it .xpi and then open it with firefox. Often it works.
If it's a specific OS question, you can use the Windows 95/98/ME, or Windows XP/NT/2000/2003 forum.
@ acklan - thanks, which forum can I start the new post in?
