Speed Our FireFox Up!

Posted by bfindarto on October 23, 2008

Here’s something for broadband people that will really speed Firefox up.  If you’re still on dial-up you can just skip this one for now. It’s not really a new trick, but it is something that i’ve tried.

  1. Open the firefox browser and type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return. enter “network” in the filter box. Scroll down and look for the following entries:
    network.http.pipelining
    network.http.proxy.pipelining
    network.http.pipelining.maxrequests
  2. 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.
  3. Alter the entries as follows:
    Double click the “network.http.pipelining” to set it to “true”
    Double click the “network.http.proxy.pipelining” and set it to “true”
    Double click the  “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” and enter a number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.


  4. 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.

Enjoy   🙂
