Everyone wants to speed up firefox, make firefox load faster and open sites faster. So how do you speed up Firefox, especially for broadband internet connections. Here is a Quick Tip to Speed Up Firefox:

Speed Up Firefox, Make Firefox fast

Tip 1 : Normally when you type in a url, the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several requests at once, which really speeds up page loading.

Step 1: 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

Step 2: Alter the entries as follows:

  • Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”
  • Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”
  • Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

Tip 2: Change the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.

  • Right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer.
  • Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0”. This value reduces the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.
