[Firefox] Speed up Browser
Dont know if this has been posted before by anyone.. so to do as the title says do the following:
1. Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:
network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests
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.
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 receives.
Now you firefox web browser will really be on fire!
Oh for all you Dial Up Users.. It may not help try getting Broadband :P

Does anyone know if the above tweaks work on FF3?
I don't get a warning about dragons, just that my warranty might be void if I fiddle!
17th June 2008, 09:04 PM #12
Yes it works for FF3 as i have already done it no problems
17th June 2008, 10:13 PM #13
FF3 seems so much faster anyway.. Think i'll leave it alone for awhile

Also be aware that using the above tweaks can put extra stress on webservers. Be considerate to your neighbourhood webmasters.

just done this, does seem to be faster, not that it was slow anyway
