[Firefox Fun] Warp 10 Browsing

Postby Jeff » 2005.01.05 1:41 pm

I haven't done one of these for a while, so here's a good one.

If you have a broadband connection, you can make pages load much, much faster in Firefox thanks to a technology called "pipelining". It allows multiple connections to one site, which lets page elements come up quicker. Here's what you've gotta do:

Type "about:config" in your address bar, without the quotes, of course.

Scroll down to "network.http.pipelining" and set it to "True".

Scroll down to "network.http.proxy.pipelining" and set it to "True".

Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some higher number. 25 is probably good, and you wouldn't want to go over 50.

Lastly, right-click anywhere in the window and go to New > Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" (without the quotes) and give it a value of 0.

You're done! Now close all Firefox windows to apply the settings, and enjoy your faster browsing experience.
I do what I can.
