Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 207

post #2061 of 7225
Omg, I am such a idiot....rolleyes.gif Can't believe I missed that one.tongue.gif
Thank you mate, love you.biggrin.gif
Btw, I tried some of your speed tweaks, but I can't be totaly sure they did anything to improve speed... I'm sure the answer to my next question may be obvious, but, do those tweaks help at all if the site is slower because of a problem on their end? Olso about the pipeline thing, is there any danger I might be labeled/banned/suspected/whatever of trying to ddos if my browser sends so many requests at once?

Three things affect the speed. Your end, their end and browser settings. Let's say I have a 40mbps connection and they have a 10mbps connection. Then the overall speed between both of us will be 10mbps (whoever has the slowest speed). Now let's say both of us have a 40mbps connection. Then you're only limited by how much data your web browser can push through, making the web browser the weak link. By tweaking the browser you can in fact speed up how much data gets pushed through the browser.

All of my speed tweaks do work and are on the safe side. So you don't have to worry about being banned or accused of a DDOS attack.

Ok, thank you once again. I did actually read up on those changes thanks to the links you provided, but even so I understood like only 70% of what's going on.smile.gif That is why I asked.
LE: Would it be too much to ask for some explenations for these as well please? They werent included in those lists so I havent used them yet. In lame terms if you please.smile.gif For example wasnt IPv6 supposed to be a good thing, why disable it, and how do i know which of them I make integer and which boolean?
"network.dns.disableIPv6": set “false”
“content.notify.backoffcount”: set “5“
“plugin.expose_full_path”: set “true”.
“ui.submenuDelay”: set “0

"network.dns.disableIPv6": set “false” (This is disabled for now because it's not fully being used yet on the internet. It's a great thing and I heard it will be fully supported later this year.)

“content.notify.backoffcount”: set “5“ (Rather than wait until a page has completely downloaded to display it to the user, Mozilla applications will periodically render what has been received to that point. Because reflowing the page every time additional data is received greatly slows down total page load time, a timer was added so that the page would not reflow too often. This preference controls the maximum number of times the content will do timer-based reflows. After this number has been reached, the page will only reflow once it is finished downloading.)

“plugin.expose_full_path”: set “true”. (This isn't really necessary but I like to have it. Basicly what it does is show the full path to the plugin instead of just the file name when using about:plugins)

“ui.submenuDelay”: set “0" (Determines the delay in milliseconds between hovering over a menu option with a submenu and the submenu appearing. If this preference is not set, the OS's value is used.)

Hope this helps! All the number settings are in milliseconds. Everything is for speed. If the settings aren't in about:config then you have to manually enter the setting. Right-click, enter the string (For example: ui.submenuDelay), choose integer if it's a number or boolean for true/false.

There is no 64bit plugin for Microsoft Windows Media Player BUT you can contact the web site owner and request they change from Media Player Plugin to Silverlight ( http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/ ). The Media Player Plugin is being phased out and replaced with Silverlight which does the same thing as the Media Player Plugin. It shouldn't be much trouble for them to switch over. Once they have changed, then you can simply download Silverlight to install the plugin into Waterfox and everything will work perfectly.

64bit apps will always run faster and smoother on a 64bit OS (Operating System). Using 32bit apps on a 64bit OS will still work but 64bit apps are native and will have access to all the system memory (RAM) and use it more efficiently. 32bit apps have a limit of 3gigs or memory and can't use more than that. So Waterfox technically will always be faster since it's a 64bit web browser on a 64bit OS.

Keep in mind, lots of open tabs and lots of add-ons/plugins use more resources and memory. This can slow down the browser and OS but if you have plenty of memory (RAM), then this won't be an issue. That's why you always hear, the best and cheapest way to speed up a computer is by adding memory. More memory, more apps you can run at the same time without slow downs or crashes.

@ djkilla

all of this i know mate , my question was if waterfox run faster than ff 11 and u can notice the speed or its just a waste of time and more like a show off running x64 browser....
