Dunno if this works, but I got it from someone else
I've seen a lot of this sort of thing over on:
Quite frankly, my FF is working so well right now (had it for about 2 weeks) that I don't want to mess with it.
Yes, it works, very nice!
Yes, it does seem to be a little zippier.
I'll give it a shot
Hmm...I'll have to try this when I get home today
keep us posted if you find it DOES work!!
That rocks! Works like a champ.
There is also a speed up tweak for the Adobe Acrobat 6.0 reader but I forgot where to find it again.
Any explaination why the faster setting wouldnt be the standard setting?
Thanks!!! This does seem to be a bit faster.
Any other FF tips from anyone?
When you change the settings, your browser can make 30 requests at once. This is great for broadband! If you had dial-up, this would only slow things down.
The reason pipelining is not the default is that some web servers don't respond to the pipelining requests correctly. You may hit a site that just sits there and stalls. This was more of a problem a year or so ago (Mozilla has this option as well) and I came across a few sites that wouldn't work with pipelining on and according to the Mozilla pref's page, proxy servers might not like it either.
I didn't notice too much of an increase. Oh well. I didn't know about the
about:config thing before.
Firefox is already really fast in my PC's.It's Mozilla 1.7.x that seems to take a bit of time loading.PC's are so fast these days it doesn't make a lot of difference.
that works great
This is meant to be nice to webservers. Some will cut you off after X amount of concurrent requests...then the page will load incorrectly.
I'm on broadband and this tweak actually seemed to slow down a few of the pages I frequent... since I got almost instantenous page loading before (i.e. not much room for noticable improvement to begin with), I just turned pipelining off again. YMMV.
This is part of a post on another forum I keep updated for the info of the members there. Someone may find it useful.
In addition, adding these lines of code to the user.js file will speed up page rendering, a lot. These lines make the browser so fast it's freaky. The file can be found (on Win2K) at C:\Documents and Settings\(profile name)\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\default.***\user.js. Replace the user.js file in the profile folder with the one in this zip file. If there isn't one there, place this one there. Users have tested different settings based on computer and connection speeds, so chose the one that most closely fits your setup.
Midrange computer (500mhz or so) on dialup connection
Midrange computer on any broadband connection
Fast computer (1.0 ghz and up) on dialup connection
Fast computer on DSL connection
Fast computer on cable connection
If the work, great! Try several. If not, just delete the user.js file. Have fun!
