    I got this from another forum , the purpose of this is to enable the browser firefox to operate faster.


    Open 'about:config' in your address bar and then...

    For Broadband:

    network.http.max-connections : 64
    network.http.max-connections-per-server : 21
    network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server : 8
    network.http.pipelining : true
    network.http.pipelining.maxrequests : 100
    network.http.proxy.pipelining : true

    For Dial-up:

    browser.cache.disk_cache_ssl : true
    browser.xul.error_pages.enabled : true
    content.interrupt.parsing : true
    content.max.tokenizing.time : 3000000
    content.maxtextrun : 8191
    content.notify.backoffcount : 5
    content.notify.interval : 750000
    content.notify.ontimer : true
    content.switch.threshold : 750000
    network.http.max-connections : 32
    network.http.max-connections-per-server : 8
    network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy : 8
    network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server : 4
    network.http.pipelining : true
    network.http.pipelining.maxrequests : 8
    network.http.proxy.pipelining : true
    nglayout.initialpaint.delay : 750
    plugin.expose_full_path : true
    signed.applets.codebase_principal_support : true

    Then right click anywhere in that window(if your on broadband, this is useless on dialup) and click new>integer with the name "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and the value "0"

    This will cause there to be no delay in rendering pages, and will also make a crapload of connections to a websites server. this is about the max number you can do before anti-DOS stuff kicks in at there end. and it WILL speed up browsing a lot...

    I notice a difference too. But write the instuctions down. What a pain in the ass trying to switch back to here and the config bar.




    Edit: Sorry Formula1 , I should of thanked you !

    I forgot the last step , I'm on broadband ,it made it a little faster still. The right click one .

    Very Nice! I noticed a major difference! Pages "Flash" open with greater speed! Love it!

    some pages still stay the same (but they're server is very slow..astalavista lags sometimes during a search..always there)

    just open another window (not tab) and make it so one is on top of the screen and one is on the bottom... that way you can see the instructions and set it up...
