Speed up Firefox!

Wednesday, June 7th, 2006

I first applied this to my Ubuntu system, and after getting good results, I later updated my Max OS X and WinXP systems. Good stuff! Add the following to your user.js file:

user_pref("network.http.pipelining", true );
user_pref("network.http.proxy.pipelining", true );
user_pref("network.http.pipelining.maxrequests", 8 );
user_pref("content.notify.backoffcount", 5 );
user_pref("plugin.expose_full_path", true );
user_pref("ui.submenuDelay", 0 );
user_pref("content.interrupt.parsing", true );
user_pref("content.max.tokenizing.time", 2250000 );
user_pref("content.notify.interval", 750000 );
user_pref("content.notify.ontimer", true );
user_pref("content.switch.threshold", 750000 );
user_pref("nglayout.initialpaint.delay", 0 );
user_pref(network.http.max-connections", 48 );
user_pref("network.http.max-connections-per-server", 16 );
user_pref("network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy", 16 );
user_pref("network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server", 8 );
user_pref("browser.cache.memory.capacity", 65536 );
