speed up firefox

hey check out these i covered frm a site.try them it really works

Double Click on the following settins 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

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!

If you use Firefox, here are some tips to make it “better”

If you search your “Documents and Settings” folder for “prefs.js”, you can find your Firefox profile directory.

In the directory with prefs.js, create (or edit) a new file called “user.js”. Anything placed in this file will override the prefs.js file.

//begin my preferences

// Instead of annoying error dialog messages, display pages:
user_pref(“browser.xul.error_pages.enabled”, true);

// More DOM/JavaScript options
// Make sure all pop-up windows are resizable:
user_pref(“dom.disable_window_open_feature.resizab le”, true);
// Make sure all pop-up windows are minimizable:
user_pref(“dom.disable_window_open_feature.minimiz able”, true);
// Always display the menu in pop-up windows:
user_pref(“dom.disable_window_open_feature.menubar “, true);
// Always display the Navigation Toolbar in pop-up windows:
user_pref(“dom.disable_window_open_feature.locatio n”, true);
// Prevent sites from disabling scrollbars:
user_pref(“dom.disable_window_open_feature.scrollb ars”, true);

// Disable Bookmark Icons
user_pref(“browser.chrome.site_icons”, false);
user_pref(“browser.chrome.favicons”, false);

//stop sites from spawning new browsers
user_pref(“browser.block.target_new_window”, true);
user_pref(“browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick”, true);
user_pref(“browser.tabs.opentabfor.urlbar”, true);

//gets rid of display quirk with images
user_pref(“browser.display.show_image_placeholders “, false);

//use bandwidth more effeciently and maybe load sites faster
user_pref(“network.http.pipelining”, true);
user_pref(“network.http.pipelining.firstrequest”, true);
user_pref(“network.http.pipelining.maxrequests”, Cool;
user_pref(“nglayout.initialpaint.delay”, 0);
user_pref(“network.http.proxy.pipelining”, true);
user_pref(“content.notify.backoffcount”, 5);
user_pref(“plugin.expose_full_path”, true);
user_pref(“ui.submenuDelay”, 0);
user_pref(“content.interrupt.parsing”, true);
user_pref(“content.max.tokenizing.time”, 2250000);
user_pref(“content.notify.interval”, 750000);
user_pref(“content.notify.ontimer”, true);
user_pref(“content.switch.threshold”, 750000);
user_pref(“nglayout.initialpaint.delay”, 0);
user_pref(“network.http.max-connections”, 4Cool;
user_pref(“network.http.max-connections-per-server”, 16);
user_pref(“network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy”, 16);
user_pref(“network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server”, Cool;

//use memory for caching 65535 might be better for 1GB of RAM
user_pref(“browser.cache.memory.capacity”, 16384);

From there, browse into the “chrome” directory. Create or edit this files.
