Boost Your Firefox

If you are using the Mozilla Firefox browser and find that your browsing is a bit slower like loading texts or images, here are some tweaks that would help improve the browsing experience.

These tweaks would enhance your Firefox browser up to 70% in total performance - lol! i ain't selling anything. How was this possible? Well, have tried this and plenty of other Firefox users too.

Go to Firefox Configurations Page
  1. Open Firefox browser
  2. in the URL bar, type "about:config"

A menu or page will be shown containing Firefox configurations. Remember to be careful in changing the settings as these settings is allowed to advanced users, if you're not, just follow the instructions. Well, if you want to be experimental, you can re-install the software anytime. LMAO!

Just below the URL bar, a Filter text box is located. In the table below, input the following configurations (Preference Name) at a time and input the corresponding value/number.

network.http.max-connections 48
network.http.max-connections-per-server 16
network.http.pipelining true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests 100
network.http.proxy.pipelining true

That's it.. That will work on most internet connections. However, an additional configuration is available for broadband users.
  1. Right-click somewhere on the menu 
  2. Click New
  3. Select Integer
  4. A pop-up window will appear
  5. Type "nglayout.initialpaint.delay”
  6. Set value to "0"

This configuration will be the waiting time of the browser before doing/acting the information received. It's value was set to zero (0), it is then the amount of the browser's waiting time. Since you’re broadband, it should not wait.
