Speed Up Firefox
    #3578941 - 01/04/05 12:16 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

FROM: http://iraszl.brinkster.net/creativebits/2005/01/speed-up-firefox.html

"This tip will speed up your Firefox significantly, but will mainly work for broadband users. To achieve this speed increase you need to alter certain settings of Firefox to speed up page requests and the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives. To edit these preferences you need to open the configuration page of Firefox by typing the following into the address bar:
about:config

This will bring up a long list of Preferences. You can filter them by typing:
network.http.p



You will need to make 3 changes and one addition to the preferences:

* Find network.http.pipelining and click on it to turn it's value from false to true.
* Find network.http.proxy.pipelining and click on it to turn it's value from false to true.
* Find network.http.pipelining.maxrequest and change it's value to 30.
* Finally you will need to add an extra preference. You can do that by CTRL-Clicking in an empty area and selecting New/Integer from the contextual menu. Enter the name in a pop-up window: nglayout.initialpaint.delay and set it's value to O.

Restart Firefox and enjoy!"

If it is an integer then it's 0.
