Right I've just done the following to firefox and it has speeded up noticeably. BUT I'm no expert, I have no idea why it's faster and I don't know whether the changes spell long term disaster or if it works with all versions. So do this at your own peril: Open Firefox 1. Type âabout:configâ into the address bar and hit Enter. (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 ânetwork.http.pipeliningâ to âtrueâ Set ânetwork.http.proxy.pipeliningâ to âtrueâ Set ânetwork.http.pipelining.maxrequestsâ to some number like 10. This means it will make 10 requests at once. 3. Lastly, right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it ânglayout.initialpaint.delayâ and set its value to â0â;.(Zero) This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives. If youâre using a broadband connection youâll load pages faster now.
