    How to speed up firefox browser to load pages even FASTER

    How To Speed Up Firefox (Helpful Vanity)

    Posted on 12/12/2004 12:45:50 PM PST by KoRn

    Here's something for broadband people that will really speed Firefox up:

    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

    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.

    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.

    3. Lastly right-click anywhere 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 recieves.

    If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!
    I did it, and hory clap it's awesome, everything's loading so fast now (well all the pages i tested out)

    yeah make sure you tell everyone else about it so they can bog down web servers with 30 requests per second and destroy the internet

    30 is a bit high, it's set to a low integer for a reason :D

    Seriously though, if you leave it to the default value of four the difference is not that noticeable, and it's much kinder on servers.

    I think I'll pass on this. It runs fast enough for me, honestly, and seems a bit greedy to demand that much from each server I connect to for a minor speed increase.

    Re: How to speed up firefox browser to load pages even FASTER

    Tired of the WoW site taking so freaking long to load, so I finally broke down and did this. Set the max requests to 15 (compared to the default 4) and am REALLY impressed with the results.

    Sorry to bump an ancient thread.

    These changes can seem like an improvement, but eventually you'll run into a site (or sites) where they break things.

    Details from a Mozilla developer's blog:
    http://weblogs.mozillazine.org/asa/archives/007164.html

    Ultimately, use them at your own risk. There's a reason they're not exposed in user-friendly preferences. =)

    More like 7-8 times faster, depending on how you set it up.

    Could you actually hurt website owners because of it? That's why I never use it.
