Speed Up Your Firefox

Here's something for broadband people that will really speed Firefox up:

1.Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

2. Alter the entries as follows:

Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true"

Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true"

Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

Right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set its value to "0". This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.

Go to the filter bar again and type network.dns.disableIPv6. Normally it says ” false ” under value field , Double click it so it becomes ” true “.

Go to the filter bar again and type plugin.expose_full_path. Normally it says ” false ” under value field , Double click it so it becomes ” true “.

Now you need to Create new Preference name with interger value for this got to Right click -> New -> Integer. Here you need to type content.notify.backoffcount and click ok. Now you need to enter 5 in value filed and click ok.

Now you need to Create one more Preference name with interger value for this got to Right click -> New -> Integer. Here you need to type ui.submenuDelay and click ok. Now you need to enter 0 in value filed and click ok.

I did it myself, and it works wonders!!
