OT!---Firefox speed tweaks


Recommended Posts

For those of you who are using Firefox on broadband, you can get some more speed. These tweaks are supposed to work with Mozilla too, and I would suppose then Netscape 'cause it's supposed to be the same source.

Firefox does seem to be faster so I'm going to try the same tweaks on Mozilla.

 

I got this from a link I found on the Mepis Lovers forum & thought I'd share.

 

NOT FOR DIAL UP USERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To start:

Open Firefox.

Type "about :config" in the address bar.

Find these options, double click each one and change to below values:

 

network.http.max-connections: 48

 

network.http.max-connections-per-server: 24

 

network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy: 12

 

network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server: 6

 

network.http.pipelining: true

 

network.http.pipelining.maxrequests: 16

 

network.http.proxy.pipelining: true

 

After changing the values just close Firefox and open it again.

 

Some people told that these setting may hammer some servers.

Changing the "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to max of 8 will probably solve the problem.(above reduced to 16 from 32 already)

WOW!!!

 

I've been looking for these tweaks (or at least expecting I'd run into them somewhere).

 

There was a VERY significant decrease in page load times that I noticed immediately-- EXCELLENT stuff-- Thanks Dak :)

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

Dito... For some reason, Firfox has been stammering a bunch, lately. I think it started when I pulled version 0.9 and installed version 1.0. Not sure if that was it. But, these tweaks definitely helped out 3 of my home systems! These tweaks are a keeper.

Seems like an even bigger speed increase percentage in Mozilla so if you use that browser give the tweaks a shot too.

Though I haven't been on Windows for a week or so I'll have to jump over there and reset Firefox and Mozilla over there too.

I be stylin' :D

Anyone?

:DTR

Don't know if this will do but got to edit, preferences, advanced. You'll see Accessibility with a plus in the box. Click on it and the submenu will drop down. Mark the box beside "Begin finding when you begin typing".
