5 Easy Steps to Speed Up Your Firefox Browser!
I like to present to you a few easy steps, how you can improve your Firefox speed. Works on all Firefox from 3 and forward. Firefox has been outperforming IE in every department for years, and version 7 is speedier than ever. But tweak the right settings and you could make it even faster still, more than doubling your speed in some situations, all for about five minutes work and for the cost of precisely nothing at all and without compromising your security. Here’s what you need to do.
First : Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:
network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests
Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.
Alter the following entries as follows :
1. Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”
2. Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”
3. Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.
4. Right-click anywhere on the white area, and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0″. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.
5. set “browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers” to “0″
And if you want to, for your own safety? You change the default search engine to StartPage. But first you need to go here, if you haven’t already. Link
And then : Set “browser.search.defaultenginename” to Startpage then you can browse with a superior speed.
