hey all. i remember when the new version of firefox came out, there was a thread about it. inside somebody posted some ways to alter the script and speed up the browser.

i dont think the page list goes back that far 'cause i couldnt find the original thread. i had to reinstall firefox, so if anyone here knows how to do it, please post it here to help a fellow PH addict out and anyone else who may have missed it.

I went to this thread to speed up my FF (I need to do it again) however when I type config into my browser as directed, I am redirected to a mozilla website. Can anyone help?

Set network.http.max-connections to 48

Set network.http.max-connections-per-server to 24

Set network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy to 12

Set network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server to 6

Set network.http.pipelining to true

Set network.http.proxy.pipelining to true

Set network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to 8. Any more and you may get banned from the site visited, as it may be viewed as DOS attack. Try a higher value say upto 32 but be prepared to lower the value if sites fail to load.

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 recieves.

If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages 2-3 times faster now, even if a dial-up connection it will still be faster than before.

I have been having horrible problem with Firefox and Camino on Mac. Often...(a few times a week), the program will lock up and go into a 'thinking mode' and not come out of it.

I am beginning to dislike Firefox LOTS

typing about:config in the address bar has always worked for me...
