Thread: Browser Tweak

  1. #1


    These tweaks help speed up the browsing of Firefox to some degree. Experiment with the values too, but try the ones listed here first; (I found this posted @ another site)

    Open Firefox.

    Type about:config in the address bar and hit the Enter key. Find these options, right click each one and change the default values to the ones listed below.

    network.http.max-connections: 48

    network.http.max-connections-per-server: 24

    network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy: 12

    network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server: 6

    network.http.pipelining: true

    network.http.pipelining.maxrequests: 32

    network.http.proxy.pipelining: true

    For those of us on an IE based browser (MyIE2,Advant,etc......) You can still use this tweak to speed up your browser!!!! (This is mainly for Win9x platforms,which set the upper limit)

    Goto this location in your registry:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft&#09 2;Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]

    Change the 'MAX CONNECTIONS' on both to 48

    You will notice mega speed increase....I went from 10/8 to 48 on both and it is incredible!!!!!!! (I took my own tweak for speed increase and tested it with 48 on mine here and it is insane the difference in speed)

    Good Luck!!!!!
