Make Firefox even faster!

Recommended Posts

hey i went to the site and it said you have to pay just thought id push one i found from amdedge

 

 

1. Type "about:config" in the adress field.

2. Set the value of network.http.pipelining to "true".

3. Set the value of network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to "100".

4. Set the value of network.http.proxy.pipelining to "true"

5. Set the value of nglayout.initialpaint.delay to "0"

 

Yep, Tested it myself. Increases Mozilla Firefox speed and MAY also work for Mozilla.

Set the value of network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to "100".

 

i read the more you push the faster it gets so i pushed mine to 250 works great

if you cannot find them, right click on the about:config page and add them by typing them in, i couldnt find the initialpaint one and i typed it in, and it works,

 

good luck

I'm very new to Linux and this forum is a great help! I just tried the modification to Firefox and it's fantastic! I also set the maxrequests value to 250 and see no problem. Firefox is WAY faster!!

 

Thanks again!

There is a new Firefox extension, called Tweak Network Settings 1.0, which will allow you to tweak some of these settings right from the Tool Menu. This may help some people improve the speed of Firefox quite easily. Just check the newest Firefox extensions.
