Exclamation Mozilla Firefox Tweaking

OK, i figured there's probably alot of people who are having problems with their FF being slow.. these 8 tweaks will help to make your Fox fly.

(I've used these tweaks for the past 10 weeks and no problems whatso ever)

So lets get started.

Open Firefox and in the address bar type: about:config this will open hidden options.

underneath the address bar there is another bar that you can start typing in the names, and it will shorten the list accordingly.

1. Find browser.tabs.showSingleWindowModePrefs and double click on it so it = true
2. Find network.http.pipelining and double click on it so it = true
3. Find network.http.pipelining.maxrequests set from 4 to 100
4. Find network.http.max-connections and set to 48
5. Find network.http.max-connections-per-server and set to 24
6. Find network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy and set to 12
7. Find network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server and set to 6
8. Find network.http.proxy.pipelining and double click on it so it = true

after finishing those 8 tweaks, close FF, reopen, and go to any page, it should pretty much Dump the whole page at once. however if the server itself is slow, it will slowdown, but not as slow as before

Goodluck in your tweaking.
