Make firefox faster

firefox-logo

Yes, firefox is already pretty damn fast but did you know that you can tweak it and improve the speed even more?

Procedure

Here is the step by step guide:

Step 1

Open Firefox.

Step 2

In the URL bar, type
about:config
and press enter.
This will bring up the configuration "menu" where you can change the parameters of Firefox.

Step 3

Now click on "I'll be careful, I promise" button.

Step 4

Double Click on the following settings and put in the numbers below - for the true / false booleans - they?ll change when you double click.
browser.tabs.showSingleWindowModePrefs ? true
network.http.max-connections ? 48
network.http.max-connections-per-server ? 16
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy ? 8
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server ? 4
network.http.pipelining ? true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests ? 100
network.http.proxy.pipelining ? true
network.http.request.timeout ? 300

Note: These settings are optimized for broadband connections.

Step 5

Now Right-click somewhere on that screen and add a NEW -> Integer. Name it as "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 you should notice you're loading pages MUCH faster now!
Try it!
