Post subject: Repeat: Faster FireFox

I remember Bush posted this some time ago and I couldn't find it. After FireFox updates these values were lost to me Shocked and I finally found it again so here we go again to a faster browser experience!!

Here's something for broadband people that will really speed Firefox up:

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.

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

LOL..no Crash, actually, it was a sarcastic stab at Windows...lol

I do have to admit that since the XP release, there has been fewer reinstalls as compared to the days of 9x, so MS is slowly getting there...:wink:

I'm just happy that FireFox, which in my opinion is a great browser, is available for both MS and Linux and the tricks or tips learned apply to both OS's...:D
