Increase the speed of your browsing with Firefox

Open Firefox.
Type "about:config" in the adress bar (no quotation marks).
Find these options, double click each one and change to below values:

network.http.max-connections: 48

network.http.max-connections-per-server: 24

network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy: 12

network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server: 6

network.http.pipelining: true

network.http.pipelining.maxrequests: 32 (I use 100)

network.http.proxy.pipelining: true

Close Firefox and enjoy the faster browsing.

Gunn,

Thanks for the info! That made a noticeable difference. I don't have a clue what I just changed, but it works. Is there any downside to these changes??

Also, does anyone use Thunderbird?

Some weeks I 'use' at least 4 bottles - some weeks less. Used to use Mad Dog or Ripple. :cheesygri

I have been using the tweak for a few months without a problem. No downside at all just speed. I also use Thunderbird and I think it's also a good program.

Thanks for the tweaks. I like the simplicity of Firefox, and being able to open tabs for multiple sites.

I also I have thunderbird. One thing I would like to change is that when I reply to an email my reply is at the bottom of the original email instead of the top. Anyone know how to make the change.

Pat

OK another tweak
Type in about:config in search box. Right-click anywhere in the page that appears and select New>interger. Name it " nglayout.initialpaint.delay " and set its value to "0 "
If you are on broadband it will load pages faster.
