Speed Firefox up!

Make Firefox download pages faster by allowing multiple connections so it can download more than one file at a time:

  1. Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries and set the value like this:

    network.http.pipelining --> true
    network.http.proxy.pipelining --> true
    network.http.pipelining.maxrequests --> 30 (This means it will make 30 requests at once)

    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. 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.

Now, Firefox will load the pages much faster.

Subjectively, it works, thanks!...do you know of any drawbacks e.g. web server shutting you out because of too many requests at a time? I have now set the max requests to 10.

Patrick Spieler said...

No, I don't know any - at least not for me acting as a client ;-) It's a good idea to play a bit with the value of maxrequest, to find a "optimal" number.

The whole hint just works if your connection is broadband.

The Firefox web browser will save visited websites for a minimum of 90 days and a maximum of 180 days in the Firefox history by default. The hard limit is set to 40000 websites that are stored in the History. Sportsbook When that limit is reached old history entries will be deleted from the database that contains all the visited websites. Some users have experienced massive startup problems if their Firefox history database contains lots of entries.
Some users, especially those with the Google Toolbar installed, experienced a huge history database that had a size of several hundreds Megabytes. A good way of speeding up the Firefox web browser is to limit the history that it records.
Most users know that it is possible to change the minimum days the history is stored in the Firefox options. online betting What only a few know is that there are additional settings in the about:config dialog that make it possible to change the hard limit and the maximum days a website is kept in the history.
To speed up Firefox by limiting the history do the following: Open a new web browser tab and load the page [about:config]. Now filter for the term [browser.history] and locate the following three parameters:
browser.history_expire_days: The maximum days that Firefox stores websites in the history database. (default 180)
browser.history_expire_days_min: The minimum days that Firefox stores websites in the history database (default 90)
browser. march madness history_expire_sites: Defines the hard limit (that is the maximum) of websites that are stored in the Firefox history. Reducing the amount from 40000 to a lower value can help a lot.
Reducing both the minimum and maximum values to a lower number can improve the performance of the web browser especially during startup. There are no perfect values which means that the user has to experiment a bit to find the values best suited for the browsing situation. Suggested values are 7,14,28 or 56 days for both settings. Users who want to get rid of the history completely need to use 0 as the value in both parameters.
