Speeding Up Firefox

Recommended Posts

I did this to my PC, and it loads faster.

NOTE: It appears all images will not load, unless you right click and hit load images.

This was posted by Steve Unruh, a fellow moderator:

in case you dont know these, do this:

in the url line type in:

about:config

scroll down and find and change these entries to this value:

(just double click on these headings)

network.http.max-connections 30

network.http.pipelining true

network.http.pipelining.maxrequests 30

network.http.proxy.pipelining true

(this next step can be done anywhere, it does NOT matter which line is highlighted, you are creating a new entry)

then

right click: new

integer

(type in) nglayout.initialpaint.delay

0

kill firefox and restart it.

Helps to disable IPV6 as well within your about:config

I have the "AdBlock Plus" add-on which helps significantly as it removes a lot of adds (although, can't run it here on TT as they shut you down until you either get a Team TT membership or disable it for TT).

Lately, I've been playing with Google Chrome again. One of the fastest browsers I've ever used.

I looked at Google Chrome months ago. I read reviews (CNET?) and opted not to use it.

I am curious how IE 8 will work...

And what exactly is that?

Google chrome is still missing a lot of key features so I won't use it as my primary browser. But, I do use it on occasion now. IE 8 is crap. I used it a couple of months back and it caused way too many problems and didn't render things correctly. Of course, it was still beta code. But, I absolutely despise using IE due to their code flaws and refusal to fix them.

And what exactly is that?[/url]

There's two IP schemas. IPv4 is the older one and has IP addresses such as 192.168.1.1 or the common ones you see. The downside to this is that in very large networks, they are running out of IP's. This includes the internet. Thus, the birth of IPv6 so it increases the number of IP's exponentially. They look like this: fe80::260:8ff:febf:50d2/64 (the /64 at the end is the network mask). Unfortunately, not many places use the IPv6 yet, so chances are you're not going to run into it. By disabling it in your browser, you tell FF to ignore any IPv6 translation. There are ways to disable it in your OS as well. But, most times just doing it in the browser is all most people need.

Or you're a Mod.:banghead:

Some of us don't have that luxury. :)
