Make your firefox run at lightning speed.

These are few steps to make your firefox run at lightning speed.

1. First in the URL bar, Type "about:config". This will bring up a list of commands and variables you can edit.

2. The second step is to put "network.http.pipelining" in the filter and change the value to true.


3. After that you will want to put "network.http.proxy.pipelining" in the filter.
Like the last one, make that value set to true also.


4. Next, locate "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" and change the value to some number higher, say 10,20 or even 30, it would make up to 10,20 or 30 requests at once.


5. The last step is to right click anywhere and select New then Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and make its value "0". This will make the browser respond faster on the information of the websites it receives.


6. Close out FireFox (make sure FireFox is closed by viewing the Task Manager) and restart it and enjoy the new mega speed


I can confirm it works...!!!!
( Not that it was that slow before )

Anyone else tried it?

Don't know I haven't found any and you can also reverse your actions by changing the values back. Just copy and paste instructions in notepad and save for future reference.

Give it a couple of hours, My Firefox is defo quicker at browsing than it was before. Might not be as noticeable to some if they've got decent internet speed etc...

These are well known (well I thought well known) tweaks, and they are legit, they have them on some of the speed test sites.
#17

Am afraid this is really old information.

Since Firefox 2 all these settings are on by default even if about:config doesnt show them as set.
