With these little tricks you can really speed up Mozilla Firefox even more then it is.

First write down whatever ther original setting was before you make the change.


1. Type "about:config" in the adress field.
2. Set the value of network.http.pipelining to "true".
3. Set the value of network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to "100".
4. Set the value of network.http.proxy.pipelining to "true"
5. Set the value of nglayout.initialpaint.delay to "0"
6. Set the value of network.dns.disableIPv6 to "true"
7. Set the value of network.http.max-connections to "48"
8. Set the value of network.http.max-connections-per-server to "16"
9. Set the value of network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy to "8"
10. Set the value of network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server to "4"

seems to really improve page loading times

*Setting a value of network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to "100" doesn't do a lot, its hardwired limit is 8.

*Set the value of nglayout.initialpaint.delay to "0":

By default, Firefox doesn't try to render a web page for 250 milliseconds, because it's waiting for data. If you add the code below to your user.js file, Firefox immediately tries to render the page, even without complete data. The drawback is on slower machines where doing a "reflow" may actually cause the total page load time to be longer.

I did everything that you instructed, except I did not have the line,

nglayout.initialpaint.delay to "0"

There were two other lines that started with nglayout. , but neither one was anything like the one above.

Am I okay with this, or is my computed about to explode? :o :lol:

Thanks

Oh man, I am a computer neophyte... :o

I added the lines, but it came out as "nglayout.initialpaint.delay to "0"", and then I set the delay to 0. The line still reads "to "0"". Am I still okay? Everything seems to be running fine.

A "live" bookmark requires an RSS feed, which HCG does not currently offer. When we upgrade the server it might be a consideration.
