Tweak Firefox Make your Firefox much faster

Recommended Posts

Got another one for all of you tweaking firefox out:
1) Ok fire up the fox

Just a heads up these settings make you download sites considerably faster, BUT they put a great deal of overload on the sites you visit

2) type in "about:config" the address bar and then hit enter

You'll see a whole load of options here you will need to change some of the values.
These ones:

network.http.max-connections = 64
network.http.max-connections-per-server= 20
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server= 10
network.http.pipelining = true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests = 200 (choose one)
nglayout.initialpaint.delay = 0
network.http.request.max-start-delay = 0

if you can't find "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" your going have to make it. Just right click and hit new integer.

network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy = 10
network.http.proxy.pipelining = true
network.http.proxy.version = 1.0

now close down firefox and start it up again.

Now Firefox will burn up the web

This is amazing! I could in theory make the numbers higher and higher and the page-load speed would get faster and faster, but does anyone know if anything bad would happen if I did?

I think you would start putting more and more load onto sites that you visit, as you are opening loads of connections at once, so its not a good idea to put it too high.

Pipelining is a trick that Firefox establish multiple connection to the server. You will put the load on that server. You will get more bandwidth share with this method. But some servers don't like this and they can ban you if you do it too much.
