How to make Mozilla Firefox even faster!

Postby YouGiveMeRash!!! » Sat Aug 28, 2004 6:43 pm

1. Type "about:config" in the address field.
2. Set the value of network.http.pipelining to "true".
3. Set the value of network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to "100".
4. Set the value of network.http.proxy.pipelining to "true"
5. Set the value of nglayout.initialpaint.delay to "0" if it is present

Watch the pages fly now.

(to change the value, right-click and go to "modifiy')

Don't remember how FireFox was before, but after the changes, it's just as fast as my MSIE.
