I dont remember where I got this, but wondering if anyone can tell me if its good advice or if there are any potential pitfalls with implementing it.

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.

i got this from another (overclockersforum.com) site. i used to do alot of overclocking in my nerdy days. very helpful information.



To change these settings, type "about:config" in the address field, press Enter




Basic Settings for ALL users_______




  • Set the value of network.http.pipelining to "true".
  • Set the value of network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to "8".
  • Set the value of network.http.proxy.pipelining to "true"
  • Set the value of ui.submenuDelay to "0"
  • Set the value of browser.xul.error_pages.enabled to "true"
Fast Broadband (Cable/DSL/LAN)_______
  • Set the value of network.http.max-connections to "48".
  • Set the value of network.http.max-connections-per-server to "16".
  • Set the value of network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy to "16"
  • Set the value of network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server to "8"
Slow Narrowband (Dialup)_______
  • Set the value of network.http.max-connections-per-server to "8".
  • Set the value of network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy to "8".

Load Firefox Faster on Windows XP
Using Windows' ability to prefetch and loads programs faster; notably America Online as proven in my AOL guide, it works well for Firefox. I recommend clearing the Prefetch folder though because it can get messy. This trick forces Prefetching for the shortcut. To do it, just edit the Shortcut to Firefox and add/prefetch:1 to the end of it, so it looks like the result below:
"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" /prefetch:1


Prevent Firefox from hogging Memory
I've noticed how firefox occaisionally gets bloated from going through several beefy sites, and it holds the cache in memory instead of disk. Well, since firefox has excellent management for memory vs. disk caching, just set the limit and its more stable and cleaner running.
  • Set the value of browser.cache.memory.capacity to "32768".
* This number is in bytes, so 32768 is equivalent to 32MB. I made mine 40MB (since I usually have several tabs open). Play with it to find your groove.



Highly Recommended Extensions_______


  • Adblock - I can no longer browse without it, does the obvious
  • GooglePreview - Adds a little box next to each google search which shows preview of website, highly useful
  • Sage - A great RSS reader that allows you to browse RSS stuff in Firefox allowing adblocking on all the crappy news sites of the world.
  • ImageZoom - Used to zoom in on images
  • Download Manager Tweak - A modification of the Firefox download manager
  • All-in-One Gestures - Allows mouse gestures which speed up simple commands
  • TabBrowser Preferences - Tons of options for how links open
