Make Firefox 4x Faster. Get DSL Speeds With Dial-up on firefox.

Recommended Posts

At one time Opera was the fastest available web browser, that time has ended. By default firefox has its turbo features shut off due to an error it used to display with tables. Use the tutorial below to add 200shots of nos to firefox, and increase page speeds up to 4 times, making firefox the fastest browser.

 

1) Open Firefox and on the address bar write about:config and hit enter

 

[find the string]

network.http.pipelining

double click and change the value to true

 

[find the string]

network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

double click and change the value to 34

 

[find the string]

browser.turbo.enabled

double click and change the value to true

 

now close and restart and see the new amazingly new speed of firefox...

I'm going to edit it now but it can go wrong so I'm going to put the default value of Mozilla (not Firefox). So if you need to put it the way it was:[find the string]network.http.pipeliningdouble click and change the value to false[find the string]network.http.pipelining.maxrequestsdouble click and change the value to 4[find the string]browser.turbo.enableddouble click and change the value to false

I found that off a site.. I wonder what happens if you put it higher than 34... Im gonna put it at 50.Later:It didnt seem to make a difference when I put it up to 100 so ill just leave it at 34.

I was just wondering if these features were set the way they were for a reason... I mean the people at firefox probably set these this way because of a possible problem they ran into. Just curious if there was a possible security reason they set this up this way. Just my two cents..

Very nice tip! It has made firefox a little bit faster...may be it is just my imagination...but as far as it seems to me that it has made the change...it is good :P I think there are lots of utilities coming up which claim to make firefox faster..i think they use these strings to make it fast...that's what I can think of..may be they use a different technology all together to make it fast :P

has firefox fixed it's slow-browser-loading and very slow browser issue?

That is part of what these alterations do. The changes listed above affect the way Firefox makes and receives requests to servers. It increases the number of requests that are allowed at a time. It has a fatter 'pipeline' to work with.

 

The 'slow load on start-up' can be improved by allowing Mozilla/firefox to stay-resident which means the "core" of the application begins when you power-on (start up) the computer and sits in the task tray near the clock on the bottom right hand of the window. Having Firefox start-up and stay resident allows for a quicker response when you start the browser because there has already been a bunch of the processes performed on machine start-up. The problem with this is your start-up takes a bit longer.

 

I might be wrong about all of this, but this is what I have been told.

Good Find it seems to be working a bit better but why dont Mozilla set these settings as the default or at least have a simple setting in Tools that allows you to speed up or slow down you browser?

It's not possible to get DSL speeds on standard <= 56k dial-up, ever. You can do little things here and there to boost the speeds, but you cannot increase a 56k connection to 256k and above just by tweaking it. It's not as if dial-up is an intentionally restricted form of DSL than you can 'unlock' or anything. The physical build of the phone line has limitations of the speed of data it can transfer on the layer a dial-up modem uses, so it's not possible to exceed standard dial-up speeds by a significant amount.This small hack make the page appear to load faster, but it seems to be just rendering the HTML quickly and then the images (and other content) later.
