Speed up firefox


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

1.Type 'about:config' into the address bar and hit enter. 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' (double click to change)
Set 'network.http.proxy.pipelining' to 'true' (double click to change)
Set 'network.http.pipelining.maxrequests' to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once. (double click to enter number)

3. Lastly 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.

If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!"
