way of speed your firefox

Technology era

Slow browsing speed for your firefox ? Don’t worry technology has brought many solutions. Mozilla Firefox is the best browser. Many browsers like Safari claim to be thrice faster than  Firefox  but they fail when it comes to innumerable features  Firefox  can support whilst others can not. Mozilla Firefox even lets its users to speedup its browsing speed. You can make firefox run much faster than Safari just by tweaking firefox’s configuration.

I have shared two methods.Method 1 is a manual method and requires no installing of any software or add-on whilst Method 2 requires installing a Mozilla add-on called FasterFox and requires sign up for an account.Method 2 is much easier than Method 1.

First Method

1. Open your Mozilla Firefox Browser.
2. In the address bar type "about:config" and hit enter.

A warning message will open. Simply click the button with this message “I’ll be careful, I promise!”
3. In the filter bar type "network.http.pipelining" as shown below,

Double click "network.http.pipelining" , this will change the default false value to true as shown above.

4. Now in the filter bar type "network.http.proxy.pipelining"  and then double click it to    change its value to true as we did for step 3.

5. Now locate this "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" Right click it and select Modify.

The default value is 4 so set it to 8.
6. Now clear the filter bar, so to get on the main page. On the same page where you are i.e about:config, Right click on any blank space, then select New > Boolean

name it "network.http.pipelining.firstrequest" and hit OK

Now when asked to enter Boolean value, select true and click OK.
7.   Right Click on any blank space and select New > Integer

Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and hit OK

When asked for integer value set it to 0

8. Restart your browser and enjoy the new browsing speed!! Enjoy ;)
