Firefox users only.Speed up firefox in 30 seconds





ncwdavid
For those using Firefox on a broadband connection, I just came across the directions below for a couple of speed-enhancing tweaks. I think resetting for pipelining with multiple requests might be a real help for my group searches that go to several websites at once:

Run Firefox? Have broadband? Here's Speed Tips

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

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