    It seems that if you don't put any value in it, when you restart the browser it disappears. anyway, if anyone has this problem, just close the browser and open ~gnome2/epiphany/mozilla/epiphany/prefs.js with a text editor and delete the line you want

    This is explained here, among others.

    Also, if you want to make fonts look a little nicer, you can try...

    font.FreeType2.enable -- set to "true"
    font.FreeType2.authohinted --> set to "true"

    Usually these are 'false'. I find that they make pages look nicer on my system.

    Thanks for the information!

    Re: HowTo: Speed Up Mozilla Firefox

    thanks for the howto, it speeded things up somewhat!

    i'm not so happy about the new integers though
    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
    i find the initialpaint-integer quite annoying as it makes FF start drawing the page earlier, as puddpunk pointed out, and it opens with a lot of blank spaces...
    what do the other integers do??
    i erased the suggested values, but how do i erase the integer??

    regards,
    buuntuu!

    Re: HowTo: Speed Up Mozilla Firefox

    Thanks, PingunZ, for the great guide.

    I want to use FF 2.0.0.1, because I am having problems with JRE5/6 in Swiftfox 2.0.0.1. It doesn't work.

    SF2 was so much faster, however, that it was hard to use FF2. This cured the problem. Now, I have to look at the name to assure I am using FF2. It is sooo much faster after making the changes.

    I think this works on switchfox as well

    Grtz PingunZ
    I checked these settings in SF2 and they are what makes it go faster.

    Re: HowTo: Speed Up Mozilla Firefox

    Forgive me for hijacking your thread, PengunZ, but I didn't want to start a new Thread for a simple question.

    Which of the many "Font" settings do I change to increase the size of the "Font" in the body of the browser. My old eyes have difficulty reading it.

    I know I can go to View and increase it, but I want it to be default.

    Thanks for your indulgence.

    Thanks, raul.

    I have done that, but it changes the font for the System. I want to change it in FF2 only.
