How To Speed Up Firefox

Happy Christmas to ALL.

My friend gaurav pointed me to a blog putting tweaks to speed up firefox and it really works. The tweaks are as below :

1.Type about:config into the address bar and hit return.
Scroll down and look for the following entries:

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page

2. Alter the entries as follows:
Set "network.http.pipelining" to true
Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to true
Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30.

This means it will make 30 requests at once.

3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select 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 recieves.

Another one pointed out by gaurav is

"network.dns.disableIPv6" as true

The above tweaks were picked up from here.
