ABC to speed up your FireFox

June 30, 2009

Firefox pages runs faster by allowing multiple connections so it can download more than one file at a time. It’s only useful for broadband users, so if you’re still on dial-up you can just skip this one for now.

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, pipelnetwork.http.proxyining and 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” (just double-click on “false” to make it “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! It works, I have tried it out !! 😀

I got this information form my friend Sudeep Ghosh, Thank you Dude !
