Minimising data useage in Firefox?

Post by tpprynn »

I use the imageblock add-on with Firefox and have flash blocked also. This is to make my Vodafone mobile broadband data last longer.*** I don't download any files or watch video. I wondered if there's anything else I can do to Firefox or Mint to make my data allowance last longer still. I have used text-based browsers but they aren't ideal. It would be good for me to make Firefox as near as possible to being a text-based browser without making navigation a pain. Thanks for any ideas.

***This has become more expensive and increasingly poor value over the last six years or so but is my only option for now.

I use NoScript and Adblock, but for a different end purpose.
