    Firefox speed tweaks

    Check it out. Seems to work well.


    Open Firefox and type about:config in the address bar.

    1. Find network.http.pipelining and double click on it
    so it = true.
    2. Find network.http.pipelining.maxrequests double
    click on it and change it from 4 to 8.

    - This enables option #2.
    - This makes FF use 8 threads to each page.

    this one makes it even faster:
    download and install chromedit extension
    https://addons.update.mozilla.org/ex...numpg=10&id=17
    then close and re-open Firefox, then go to "Edit User
    Files," (under tools) there will be tab for user.js,
    copy what's below in to that file and click save at
    the bottom. Close and re-open Firefox....Enjoy!


    user_pref("browser.cache.disk_cache_ssl", true);
    user_pref("content.max.tokenizing.time", 2250000);
    user_pref("content.notify.backoffcount", 5);
    user_pref("content.notify.interval", 750000);
    user_pref("content.notify.ontimer", true);
    user_pref("content.switch.threshold", 750000);
    user_pref("network.http.max-connections", 48);
    user_pref("network.http.max-connections-per-server",
    16);
    user_pref("network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy",
    16);
    user_pref("network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server",
    8);
    user_pref("network.http.pipelining", true);
    user_pref("network.http.pipelining.maxrequests", 8);
    user_pref("network.http.proxy.pipelining", true);
    user_pref("nglayout.initialpaint.delay", 750);
