    Urgent

    This tutorial will enable some features in firefox that will allow pipelining to increase speed in firefox. It opens more connections to browse tons faster.


    1. Open about:config

    In the title bar of FireFox Open the page "about:config"

    2. Locate the Strings

    Now you need to find the following strings/options

    You can find the correct ones easily by using the filter bar at the top.

    Type -> network.http

    It should leave you will only a few results. Now find the following.

    network.http.pipelining
    network.http.pipelining.maxrequests
    network.http.proxy.pipelining

    Network.http.pipelining -> Double Click to Set to True
    Network.http.pipelining.maxrequests -> Double Click and Set to 30
    Network.http.proxy.pipelining -> Double Click to Set to True


    3. Right click anywhere and hit NEW -> INTEGER

    Interger name: nglayout.initialpaint.delay
    Value: 0

    This will stop the delay that firefox takes before loading a page.

    4. Search for:
    browser.display.show_image_placeholders -> Double Click to Set to False

    Coool, seems most of these were enabled in my about:config anyways , but my max connections were set to 40 and i had to set false to the image placeholders.

    Thanks!
