We all know firefox is the fastest internet browser. Firefox is not only faster than netscape and Internet Explorer (IE) it is more secure and I have never had firefox lock up or crash on me.
Now that firefox is installed we are going to make it 10 times faster by telling firefox it is okay to open up multiple connects to the web site we are visiting. So it’s like having 10 browsers working for you to open one web page! This works especially well when uploading files (pictures, email attachments etc) to a websites like hotmail, yahoo mail and flickr etc.
Open firefox and in the address bar type: about:config
Now in the filter filled type in “network” or just search for network.http.pipelining – okay now change network.http.pipelining to true by clicking it. see photo below. This will allow pipelining and is step one in how to make firefox faster.
Normally Mozilla Firefox only sends one or two tunnels to the website you are visiting – Changing the following setting will allow 10 tunnels thus allowing you to view the site faster. This works good for large sites like youtube, yahoo, google, and I noticed my webmail is a lot faster to. Please don’t set it any higher than 10 because it will hurt small sites that can’t handle tons of request.
That’s all! wasn’t that easy! that’s how to make firefox faster! well what we really did was allow firefox to pipeline multiple connections to websites thus using more of your bandwidth and the site which you are connecting to so keep maxpipeline set to 10.. anything higher is bad mojo.
If you use a proxy server then you can also change the following setting to allow pipelining to a proxy. Firefox faster with a proxy!
Now what are you waiting for? Download firefox now! The download is from google and includes firefox and the google tool bar.
