geek corner: speeding up firefox

a useful guide on speeding up firefox for broadband users. basically after getting to the hidden config settings you set the browser to request more data that it usually does.

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.maxreq uests

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.pipelini ng” to “true”

Set “network.http.pipelining.max requests” to 100. This means it can make 100 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.

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

also this is very cool

set "browser. turbo. enabled" to true. it loads firefox into the memory on boot so it displays super quick on launch.

if you're on a 512 or 768Kbps broadband link and find that normally fast sites pause before displaying for a few seconds or flash sites become broken you can should “network.http.pipelining.max requests” to a lower number say 48. Basically have a fiddle, the default is 24 and the maximum is 65535. You can also try upping the “nglayout.initialpaint.delay ” up to 250 - see what works you you best,
