I found this on another forum and tried it, it really works! The following is the instructions.

Here's something for broadband people that will really speed Firefox up:

1.Type about:config into the address bar and hit return. 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.

3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it nglayout.initialpaint.delay and set its value to 0 (zero). 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!


You have to close your browser after you make the changes. When you start it back up they will be in effect.

Kind of off-topic, but I just changed from version 2 of FF to version 3. I love it! This may well be my default browser in the near future. I have been using Opera for years since it has had a "full page zoom" that worked with images as well as text and I need that.

Zoom? Try holding Control key and use the scroll wheel on ur mouse...
Images only zoom in version 3, earlier versions just zoomed text.

I also installed the add-ons Full Page Zoom 1.0 and Page Zoom Buttons 1.1.1. I've just started using these so I'm not sure of all their attributes yet, but I can finally see replacing Opera with Firefox. :T

Sorry for the thread hijack, now back to regular programming. :bigsmile:
