Firefox Tricks and Tips

Post by Nazzgull on Tue Aug 05, 2008 10:31 pm

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.

Double Click on the following settins and put in the numbers below - for the true / false booleans - they’ll change when you double click.

Code:
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


One more thing… Right-click somewhere on that screen and add a 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. Since you’re broadband - it shouldn’t have to wait.

Now you should notice you’re loading pages MUCH faster now!

Does this work for Firefox 3 or 2?

Can I know what are the effects for these and if I can make it to a higher or lower value:

Code:
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 (why lower?)
network.http.pipelining – true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests – 100
network.http.proxy.pipelining – true

Me too. That is for Firefox 2 or 1 . I find this tutorial long years ago. Can't remember website.
Something like tweakfactor. I'm not sure.

The above tip doesn't really affect the browsing speed much. The main tweak is this

Code:
network.http.pipelining – true

-this enables firefox to download from the number of connections stated below (100). Like how it works in a download manager.

Code:
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests – 100
