hi guys another extensions concern on tweaking network on firefox


with single click

https://addons.mozilla.org/extension...cation=firefox



Fasterfox



Performance and network tweaks for Firefox.

Fasterfox allows you to tweak many network and rendering settings such as simultaneous connections, pipelining, cache, DNS cache, and initial paint delay.

Dynamic speed increases can be obtained with the unique prefetching mechanism, which recycles idle bandwidth by silently loading and caching all of the links on the page you are browsing.

A popup blocker for popups initiated by Flash plug-ins is also included.

* Now checks robots.txt before prefetching.
* Added "whitelist" feature to specify sites which
should never have their pages prefetched.
* Added FastBack rendering setting.
* Moved Fasterfox options to within the designated
options in the extension manager.
* Added cs-CZ locale, special thanks to funTomas.
* Added sk-SK locale, special thanks to Rony,
SlovakSoft.
* Enhanced prefetching is now disabled by default.

good day to all and happy new year!

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.
so.

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.
can't find no.1 step please help.

Firefox Tweaking

Do any of these tweaks create problems for IE? I have both on my computer and IE is the default browser.

No, not to my knowledge. It didn't give me any problems. There erperate programs.

TO my undertsanding, It doesnt change your connection, just the way firefox "reads" the information.

I just upgraded to 2.0 and I have two questions.

Did these changes remain the same?
If they did not, is it safe to make them in Firefox 2.0?
