I know ive seen a few people bag on firefox but I love it over IE. I found this on the net one night and thought I would share it with you to speed up firefox.

(NOTE* I am not a computer professional, I just know I did what it said and it worked very well)

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!

If the server is configured correctly, you wont hammer it. Even the default settings in apache are very managable. If the server admin has them set low (I have seen 1 connection for HTML and 2 for images) then your browser will wait for the connections to open up. No negative impact.

The "dupe" is about a memory fix.

This thread is about speeding up page loading.

Some people read both the thread and the alleged dupe.

Thanks for the tip. It seems to be working. I'll watch it over the next couple of days.
