    Speed up Mozilla Firefox

    If your using firefox then try these tips, I am using it myself and it really is MUCH faster!

    Code:
     
    1) Type "about:config" (without the " " ) 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: (by double clicking them) 
     
    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. (I changed mine to 100,
    works great.) 
     
    3) Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer.
    Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" (without the " " ) and
    set its value to "0"(without the " " ). This value is the amount
    of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.
    Enjoy!

    Re: Speed up Mozilla Firefox

    Do any of these settings still work on Firefox 12? Would it be worth me changing them?
