Make Pages load in Firefox faster





Manwho
1) Open Firefox
2) Type this into the address bar: about:config
3) Right Click and select New > Integer
4) Name the Integer: nglayout.initialpaint.delay
5) Put the Integer's value to: 0

What this does is that it tells Firefox to wait 0 milliseconds before loading the page so the page loads extremly fast.

I hope this works, because you can never be sure. Just say whether there was any difference or not.

To wait 0 milliseconds before starting to display the page onscreen, to be more exactly. This is not always desirable for slow CPU's as the page layout has to be reformatted every time a new piece of information is loaded.

I just checked the configuaration of my firefox, and it already is zero. So why is it a tricky? Or because I just installed the fasterfirefox extension?

Anyway, thanks for trying to help others.

I did when I installed Fasterfox, but if you don't have fasterfox it would be useful to change this manually.

Well I was just trying to help,

whats fasterfox?...can i download it from Firefox's website?

EDIT: Just downloaded it, thanks for this, I didnt know abt it since I only check out themes, not plugins or extensions

Theres more to speeding up firefox than that, you could go to www.ehow.com and search for Faster Firefox and u get some good stuff. Or theres a program called FireTune that works pretty good. I dont think FasterFox is that great, it worked for the first couple days then shit the bed and the config kept changing, it was a mess. The best thing to do probly is to go to ehow or to find FireTune.

Yes, now my pages loads up in a flash, and it saves me a lot on time on waiting. However, others net application that are opened at the same time seemed to be slowed down...

I read about this in another thread, but it was suggested that you needed a broadband connection for it to do any good. I was getting frustrated with trying to browse while downloading an endless update for my Ubuntu distro, and upon reading it again here, I decided to impliment it. I feel like I can see the difference, or maybe it just makes me feel better. Laughing It does seem to help. 56k and a free ISP, I can get all the help I can get. It was nice to learn how to access firefox :about Thanks for the tip. Am I a lazy man that manages to learn somehow, or a smart man that knows how to save his energy? Like how many licks it takes to get the center of a Tootsy Pop, The world may never know. Wink
