Put on Fire in the Fox’s ass!

Make sure that you have this browser:

Speed Up Firefox

Do you know FireFox well?

And how about advanced settings page? And how about direct access to it? OK, just type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return. Just like this:

Firefox's advanced settings address

Now, what do you see?

It’s your advanced settings, basically you can’t reach most of them in other way…

How To Speed Up Your FireFox

Look for the following entries:
network.http.pipelining
network.http.proxy.pipelining
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

They looked just like this:
firefox-network-settings

Now,
Set network.http.pipelining to true
Set network.http.proxy.pipelining to true
Set network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to 10 (or 15)
Right-click, select New->Integer, name it nglayout.initialpaint.delay, set value to 0
Restart Firefox.
