How To Speed Up Firefox

Helpful Vanity

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 recieves.
