1-Performance tweaks for firefox 4 to increase the browsing speed
Type “about:config” (without quotes) in the address bar and proceed by pressing the I’ll be careful, I promise button. Now in the filter field type in the following values one by one and set its value accordingly.
For eg, type network.http.pipelining, you will see the corresponding value appearing below, double clicking it will set the value to true or false and if its some thing which has a value to be set, a popup window appears where you could enter the value for the field.
network.http.pipelining => true
network.http.proxy.pipelining => true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests => 12
content.notify.backoffcount => 5
plugin.expose_full_path => true
ui.submenuDelay => 0
network.dns.disableIPv6 => true
If any of the above value doesn’t appear, then follow the steps below.
For a setting with true or false value. For eg, if you don’t see the value being displayed below while typing content.notify.backoffcount on the filter field just right click on an empty space and select Boolean from New. Type content.notify.ontimer in the box and set its value to true.
The same is applicable if you are setting a integer value, except that you need to select Integer from the right click menu.
