Make Firefox Faster

: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 receives.

When I try this "about:config", it takes me to http://www.about.com/. Using firefox and XP. Any ideas?
My bad, you don't use the quotes and it works properly.
Hell, it even loads up AO quicker than before with doubleclick.com slowing my connections.

no space between about and colon and config
Like that without quotes.
 Well :P, you figured it out without my help. [/edit]

I love it but is there any way to get FIrefox to load faster when you first open the program?

Well, that just took my one major gripe about Firefox and flushed it. This is great and fast. I love it.

I have no way to actually test this, but loading firefox seams to have been fixed with this trick. Loads up in about 1 or 2 seconds now.
