Quick Mods To Speed Up Firefox
I ran across these mods somewhere at lifehack.org and wrote them down in my notebook. Since I typed them out to email to someone, I figured I might as well post them here as well for easy reference.
Changing the settings is quick and simple.
about:config into the address bar and press return. Type
network.http in the filter field, and change the following settings (double-click on them to change them):
'network.http.pipelining.maxrequests' to a number like
30. This will allow it to make 30 requests at once.
- Also, right-click anywhere in the browser window and select
New-> Integer. Name it
nglayout.initialpaint.delay and set its value to
'0'. (This value sets the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.)
