Make your Firefox load faster

After this simple hacking to your Mozilla Firefox browser, you will be able to surf faster than before.

Type about:config in the address bar, Then look for the following entries, and make the corresponding changes.

You can use the filter bar to search for the corresponding values out of the many values that are displayed. How? just copy and paste the value to the filter bar and it will filter it for you the matching one. Eg. Copy and paste network.http.max-connections-per-server to the filter bar to get the exact value. After that just change the value to the give ones below.

network.http.max-connections-per-server =32
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy =16
network.http.max-connections = 64
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server = 10
network.http.pipelining = true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests = 200
network.http.request.max-start-delay = 0
network.http.proxy.pipelining = true
network.http.proxy.version = 1.0

Last Step:
Right-click anywhere and select New- Integer. Name it nglayout.initialpaint.delay and set its value to 0. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.
