Looking to make FireFox faster for you? Check this little setup out's it's made a noticable difference in page load times for me.

Requirements:
1. You have FireFox (duh)
2. You have broadband

Here's how to do it:

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

network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

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 some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

Set "browser.turbo.enabled" - to "true"

Set "network.dns.disableIPv6 - to "true"

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 receives.

If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!

If you've found this helpful, toss me a rep

Im not trying to start something but be forewarned this will sound like an accusation... Ive seen this guide all over the place for quite a while now, so, if you got it from another site you should give the proper credit

You can still get a rep point for using something from another site, just give proper credit and youll get the rep for introducing it on overclock.net

I would not put it upto 30 since it can be viewed as a DOS attack by some websites which will result in your IP being banned by the site.

I would say 20 maximum.

Yeah I've had a couple of other people tell me that too... I dropped it to 15 and did notice a slight increase in page load time so I hopped it back up to 30. I'll adjust it once I come across a page that won't let me connect with 30.

Thx for the heads up.

To make it work on dialup, keep the connection number at 4, and do the rest of the steps. I had a couple people over on my forum said that it works great.
