    HowTo: Speed Up Mozilla Firefox

    This Howto works on Breezy/Dapper ( Gnome and Kde and Xfce )
    If you got mozilla firefox and a broadband connection, this howto is really useful
    Ok let's start

    EDIT :: THIS ALSO WORKS WITH FF BON ECHO

    1) In your location bar, type :
    Code:
    about:config
    2) In the filter bar type :
    Code:
    network.http.pipelining
    Normally it says " false " , Double click it so it becomes " true "

    Go to the filter bar again and type :
    Code:
    network.http.pipelining.maxrequests
    Change it to 8

    Go to the filter bar again and type :
    Code:
    network.http.proxy.pipelining
    Normally it says " false " , Double click it so it becomes " true "


    Go to the filter bar again and type :
    Code:
    network.dns.disableIPv6
    Normally it says " false " , Double click it so it becomes " true "

    Go to the filter bar again and type :
    Code:
    plugin.expose_full_path
    Normally it says " false " , Double click it so it becomes " true "

    3) Now we are gonna make a new integer
    Code:
    Right click -> New -> Integer
    Name : nglayout.initialpaint.delay
    Value : 0
    Code:
    Right click -> New -> Integer
    Name : content.notify.backoffcount
    Value : 5
    Code:
    Right click -> New -> Integer
    Name : ui.submenuDelay
    Value : 0
    EDIT : Added a few more lines TY Pjotor

    Thats it !
    Firefox will now be 3 - 30 times faster in loading pages
    Hope you guys like it

    You might want to look into the Fasterfox extension as well...

    Sadly FasterFox doesn't work with the new Firefox 5, so this thread is mighty helpful even 5 years after its creation!

    I use the FasterFox extension, and tried some of those out. Some of those variables weren't already set by FasterFox. I actually noticed some load time differences.

    Thanks,
    Harold

    P.S. This also works on XFCE, seeing how this machine is on that DE.
