Faster Firefox Config

Get more speed from Mozilla FireFox

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

2. Alter the entries as follows (by double clicking each entry):

Set network.http.max-connections to 48
Set network.http.max-connections-per-server to 24
Set network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy to 12
Set network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server to 6
Set network.http.pipelining to true
Set network.http.proxy.pipelining to true
Set network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to 8**

**Any more and you may get banned from the site visited,as it may be viewed as DOS attack. Try a higher value say up to 32 but be prepared to lower the value if sites fail to load.

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 (in milliseconds) the browser waits
before it acts on information it recieves.

p/s: If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages 2-3 times faster now,
even if a dial-up connection it will still be faster than before.
