Since upgrading to wf11, I suffered multiple freeze. cryingsmiley.gif After a while, I retested Palemoon, and to my surprise, it seemed faster, and only the usual freeze (caused when an open tab with heavy script and / or flash) are remained. So I uninstalled WF, damage the logo is really beautiful. thumb.gif

I return if the next version is convincing. triggerhappysmiley.png

No freezes here. Do a new clean profile for Firefox/Waterfox.

I'm starting to think Waterfox should have and use its own independent profile by like Pale Moon does (in %APPDATA%\Waterfox). Thoughts?

Waterfox speed tweaks:
Do you want Waterfox to scream with speed! Here's my favorite about:config settings to tweak Waterfox!

NOTE:
The settings within Firefox by default is to be used with ALL types of OS's and CPU's. My settings are best with newer hardware (last few years) and a speedy broadband connection. If you have older hardware or slower internet connection, then you can experience lag because your hardware and browser won't be able to handle the amount of data being received. So the browser will bottleneck the data. It's best to use the default settings if using a slower internet or older hardware (mainly CPU).

Reduce the amount of RAM Waterfox uses for its cache feature
1. Type “about:config” (no quotes) in the adress bar in the browser.
2. Find “browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers”
3. Set it’s value to “-1“

browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers [Integer] - This option determines how many pages to store in memory to speed up the back and forward buttons in Firefox. The default of -1 automatically determines the amount based on your system RAM, and is generally recommended. At 512MB of RAM, 5 pages are held in memory, while 1GB or more of RAM holds 8 pages. You can set this value to 0 to hold no pages in RAM (only recommended for very low RAM or troubleshooting purposes), or increase the value if you often use the back and forward functions for more than 8 pages.

additional info: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers

Increase the Speed at Which Waterfox loads pages
1. Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit Enter.
(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 loading.)

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 "8". (This means it will make 8 requests at once.)
Set "network.http.max-connections" to "256"
Set "network.http.max-connections-per-server" to "24"
Set "network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy" to "8"
Set "network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server" to "8"
Set "network.http.pipelining.firstrequest" to "true" (new boolean value) (This was an earlier setting but may no longer be needed in recent versions of Firefox but no harm is done by including it)

Set "network.http.spdy.enabled" to "true" (This is a new setting in Firefox 11 and will be on (true) by default starting with Firefox 13 or 14. It speeds up the loading of web sites if they code their web site to use this feature. It was originally created by Google and is quickly being adopted by all web browsers and the internet. Google is working to make this standardized with all browsers and the internet. The default is false but I have it set to true. Not all web sites include this but a handful like Google, Twitter, Facebook and a few others include this.)

3. Lastly, right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “25“. ((Default is 250 but my setting of 25 is perfect for a high speed broadband connection. Otherwise 125-200 is fine)

This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives. If you’re using a broadband connection you’ll load pages faster now.
Optionally (for even faster web browsing) here are some more options for your about:config (you might have to create some of these entries by Right Click –> New– > Interger or Boolean

"network.dns.disableIPv6": set “false”
“content.notify.backoffcount”: set “5“
“plugin.expose_full_path”: set “true”.
“ui.submenuDelay”: set “0

Security Tweaks
1) Set "network.prefetch-next" to "false" (If set to 'True' then it will prefetch files like Chrome does so when you click a link, the page opens faster. I have this set to 'False' so files won't be prefetched until you choose to click the link and open the page (Also to prevent malware, adware, etc. that could also be prefetched). The default is 'True' to speed up web browsing. User can decide what's best for them.)

Spell Checking
1) Set "layout.spellcheckDefault" to "2" (Will determine which text will be checked using the spell checker. The default is 1, which means only some areas will be examined. If you’d like Firefox to perform spell check on all text, change the value to 2)


Waterfox about:config
For those wanting to understand exactly what you're tweaking and additional info, read the section 'Preference Format' on page 10-11 at this location:

http://www.tweakguides.com/Firefox_1.html

Ever wonder what are those Waterfox settings in about:config and what they do? In addition to the last link, there's also an add-on for Waterfox!

http://lifehacker.com/5326224/prefse...onfig-settings


Is Waterfox crashing? A lot of the time it's due to the Adobe Flash plug-in.

Check to see if you have the latest version Adobe Flash 11.2.202.233: http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

Try reinstalling Adobe Flash by doing the following:

1) Download and run the 'Official Adobe Flash Uninstaller'
http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/uninstall_flash_player_64bit.exe

2) (Optional) Open Windows Explorer and delete the following folders:
C:\Windows\System32\Macromed
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed

**If you can't find/locate the folders, then skip this step.

3) Reinstall the latest Adobe Flash Player 64bit:
For Internet Explorer 64bit - http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/win/install_flash_player_11_active_x_64bit.exe

For Waterfox and other browsers 64bit - http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/win/install_flash_player_11_plugin_64bit.exe

**You can install both 64bit. That's what I do. I don't use 32bit browsers but if you do, continue installing the 32bit versions.

If you want to also install Flash 32bit:
For Internet Explorer 32bit - http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/win/install_flash_player_11_active_x_32bit.exe

For Firefox and other browsers 32bit - http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/win/install_flash_player_10_plugin.exe

4) You're done! Using these steps will properly remove Adobe Flash and reinstall a fresh copy. Hopefully this will fix any issues you have with flash content.


Clearing Waterfox favicons (bookmark icons)
Ever open up your list of bookmarks and wish you could reset/clear/delete those icons (favicons) beside the bookmarks and start over? Well now you can:

Install 'Delete Bookmark Icons' addon http://www.sephiroth-j.de/1/mozilla/index_en.php

None of your bookmarks will be touched; they will all still be there. Each time you visit one of your bookmarks, an icon (favicon) will be added next to the bookmark.

With Delete Bookmark Icons you are able to delete the icon of just one or all of your bookmarks. Right click on the bookmark with the icon to be deleted and select Delete Site Icon(s). To delete the icons of all of your bookmarks, select Bookmarks at the top of the Firefox browser and select Organize Bookmarks. Select the folder/location of your bookmarks and in the right side window, right click and choose Delete All Site Icons from the pop-up menu.


Looking for a FAST DNS? (Advance users)
There's lots of free public DNS severs such as Google DNS, Open DNS, Ultra DNS and many more. Picking the right DNS can speed up your connection by more than 50%. Keep in mind that DNS servers DO NOT filter internet content unless you choose too with various levels of filtering on the DNS servers website.

How do you know what's the fastest DNS server to use? There's two programs (probably more) that can determine the best DNS server for you. I prefer the following which always gives accurate detection:

DNS Benchmark
http://www.grc.com/dns/benchmark.htm

Another program which has made the scene, is the following program. Unlike the DNS Benchmark program, this one gives the best recommendations on the first run. I find it to be a little less accurate but some people prefer this one:

Namebench
http://code.google.com/p/namebench/

Namebench instructions:
http://code.google.com/p/namebench/wiki/UsingNameBench

As a tech tip, I always recommend for best results you enter/run the cmd prompt. Once at the cmd prompt, type and run the following before running the above programs --> ipconfig /flushdns

I have a low PC (dual core 1.7Ghz, 2500Mo/s speed RAM) puke.gif with MSE. So, at the least overconsumption freeze it, when I get a file freeze it (suspect MSE), opening a site heavy or badly encoded... but youtube and dailymotion OK. Since I am under palemoon, freeze it shorter, so he could get nearly a minute in WF11!!! confused.gif

Palemoon use by default one other profil (and folder).

Thank you so much for the speed tweaks and the work that went into discovering, documenting and sharing them!

Question: If I incorporate them what happens when I upgrade to the next version of Waterfox? Do I have to re-enter the tweaks?

You're welcome! I've been using these tweaks for a few years now and love the speed I get. I've changed the tweaks a little to match the latest version of Firefox/Waterfox. As far as I know, I believe the tweaks remain if you do an upgrade. The easiest way to find out is to check on one of the tweaks and see if it's still there after an upgrade. If it's there, then all the tweaks are there. I personally do a fresh install with each version of Firefox/Waterfox and re-apply everything.

**To everyone reading this, the latest version of Firefox/Waterfox now synches your add-ons. Be sure to check your synch settings to make sure you have add-ons included. Also the latest Adobe Flash now upgrades itself.

Your wish has come true! Uncheck 'Tabs on Top' and it will instantly be moved to the bottom. thumb.gif
