    I already had custom DNS servers. First opendns and then googledns. I just reversed it and also updated intel wifi 7260 drivers. Now nearly everything works with options|recommended performance settings on.
    Thanks Mr.Callender and MR.f14tomcat.

    Well firefox is getting a bit sluggish again, especially when loading videos. If i fast forward a video on youtube, the loading circle appears and the video freezes for a few seconds. I solved this last time by reinstalling windows, but its obviously not a good solution. Perhaps its time to do a fresh install of firefox or making a new profile?

    I found a potentially good security tweak. Setting network.http.sendrefererheader to 0 stops websites from tracking your browser activity. I have no way to test it though. Also, firefox just had an update, and I didnt get any popup messages this time other than a window showing the update progress.

    I've found that for a few sites not sending referrer prevents downloads from those sites but it's no big deal to re-enable.

    Do you have any good security tweaks similar to the one i found?
