Speed up Firefox

Follow the steps below to increase the speed of Mozilla Firefox:

  • In the address bar of Mozilla Firefox, type “about:config ” then press enter.
  • Using the search box at the top of the page, find the following:

    – network.dns.disableIPv6
    – network.http.pipelining
    – network.http.proxy.pipelining
    – network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

  • Now, one-by-one double click these terms and

    – set “network.dns.disableIPv6” to “true”
    – set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”
    – Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”
    -Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 30 ( this means it will make 30 requests at once) you can set it more than 30, but the network administrators do not like it.

  • Right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer.
  • Name it nglayout.initialpaint.delay and set its value to 0 (Zero, this value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it  receives.)
  • Right-click anywhere again and select New-> string.
  • Name it content.notify.backoffcount and set it’s value to 5
  • Right-click anywhere yet again and select New-> string.
  • Name it ui.submenuDelay and set it’s value to 0 (Zero)
  • Search  plugin.expose_full_path and set it to true
  • Search browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers and set it to 0 (Zero, This will disable caching of recent pages visited)
