Increase your FireFox speed

I know firefox is damn fast but with this tweak you can improve the speed a little more. Wanna try it do the following:

Open FireFox

In the Url bar type "about:config" (without quotes) and hit enter.

Search for the following:

browser.tabs.showSingleWindowModePrefs to true
network.http.max-connections to 48
network.http.max-connections-per-server to 16
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy to 8
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server to 4
network.http.pipelining to true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to 100
network.http.proxy.pipelining to true
network.http.request.timeout to 300

To change select right click --> New you find option to change "String, Integer, Boolean"

Now Right-click somewhere on the screen and add a NEW --> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0”.

That's it !

    Very informative yarr

  2. goody! will try it soon..thnxx 4 sharing ^-^


  3. thanx.. learned a lot of new stuffs from u :)

  4. Great stuff! Thanks for posting!

  5. ya these work.But you should also give ur readers a recommended value for the changes.Putting max simult connections too high will end up slowing down FF.
    Also,paint.initialdelay doesn't actually speed up FF.Usually FF will download an entire frame and then display.this tweak merely displays as it downloads.The improvement is seen only on high bandwidth consuming pages, like http://varunsvagaries.blogspot.com/ :D
