Firefox Tweaks- A useful little trick

  about:blank 12:56 26 Feb 05

Heres a little trick to speed up firefox.

To start, get Mozilla Full or Mozilla Firefox.
Now, in the Address bar type

about:config (hit enter)

You will see a whole load of options (reminds me of Regedit) Change the following values as stated:

network.http.max-connections = 64
network.http.max-connections-per-server= 20
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server= 10
network.http.pipelining = true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests = 100 or 200 (choose one)
nglayout.initialpaint.delay = 0
network.http.request.max-start-delay = 0

If nglayout.initialpaint.delay doesnt exist, Right click, new integer.

Close mozilla and start it again.
Now Mozilla Burns sites like wild.

WARNING: These settings make you download sites considerably faster, BUT put a great overload on the sites you go to. This really means nothing other then the fact that anyone else browsing will just go slower and you will absorb their speed.

For those with a little apprehension, there is a tweak network settings extension that does it also.

If you use a proxy, just change the settings entitled "proxy"

Great ...made most of the alterations but where do I find "new integer"?

With thanks.

A query. I made the changes and exited Firefox. When I restarted Firefox and checked I found that some of the values had been set back to their origianl values??

Downloaded Firefox a while ago crashed after approx 30 mins so uninstalled.

Reinstalled after reading this thread made alterations and amazed at speed.

My settings have not changed.
