Making FireFox Fatser, Speed Up Browsing

It annoys me when I want to complete my work on web faster with quick response from my web browser, but it keeps on working slowly. Sometimes it becomes nuisance when I have a lot of work pending only because of my slow web browser. I found a trick to make my FireFox web browser faster. It is not only safe but also doubles the web browsing speed especially when you are working with Broadband. It really works. Try it.

  1. Open your FireFox and type about:config in address bar.
  2. It will show a warning asking you if you really want to go on that page. Click the button I’ll be careful, I promise!.
  3. Find the entry network.http.max-connections-per-server in the long list of setting entries.
  4. Double click the Value entry that leads to Enter Integer Value message box to edit new value.
  5. Replace the current value with 32.
  6. Similarly find network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy and repeat step 4 to replace the integer value with 16.
  7. Find network.http.max-connections and repeat step 4 to replace the integer value with 64.
  8. Find network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server and repeat step 4 to replace the integer value with 10.
  9. Find network.http.pipelining and double click to replace the value with true.
  10. Find network.http.pipelining.maxrequests and repeat step 4 to replace the integer value with 200.
  11. Find network.http.request.max-start-delay and repeat step 4 to replace the integer value with 0.
  12. Find network.http.proxy.pipelining and double click to replace the value with true.
  13. Find network.http.proxy.version and repeat step 4 to replace the integer value with 1.0.
  14. Right click anywhere on the page, navigate through New to find Integer.
  15. Name it nglayout.initialpaint.delay and set its value to 0. (0 is the time amount that a browser waits before it completes the assigned task according to the given information.)

*Note:

  • Though it is easy to do, but don’t try it until unless you can do it complete with right entry values.
  • Press Ctrl + F to find the above entries faster.
  • Make sure you are editing a right entry.
