Broken In
Once you've loaded up firefox go to the address bar and type or copy and paste:


Right click and select: New -> Integer

Name the integer or copy paste:


Change the integers value to:


You can also use 0 (zero) as an Integer Value, if you don't like the performance of the 300 Integer Value.

Enjoy & Watch Your Speed!

Or If Not Try This One Too!

1. Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:


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 in the "aboug:config" page 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.

4. Restart Firefox

If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages 2-3 times faster now.

Very old. But keep in mind, there is a max limit for all these values, after which there will be no improvement because FF will simply ignore it. It was mentioned somewhere in Mozilla KB.
