Currently we use 32 kB buffers to read and write files in Firefox. Given typical file sizes of 2-3 MB this might result in too many I/O operations and suboptimal performance.

What to change

Find out how large the buffer can be to avoid increasing startup delays significantly, freezing UI when filters are changed or overusing memory.

Mass-closing all bugs in Adblock Plus for Firefox module, the codebase of Adblock Plus 3.0 belongs into Platform and User-Interface modules. Old bugs are unlikely to still apply.
