We all know, Firefox is widely used internet explorer and now many popular Ad-ons are available for it. But If we install many ad-ons for Firefox, we experienced some slowness in the performance while opening multiple pages at the same time so to increase the performance here are some tips.
Write “about:config” In the address bar of your Firefox browser and press Enter (Some time you can see some security alert so, click “Proceed” Button). Many configurations you will find.
Now After making some change in to pipelining and some for simultaneous connections we can increase the performance of Firefox.
Setting for Pipelining :
Look for the following entries in to the configuration page.
Now you have to change above entries by just double clicking each entry.
Set network.http.pipelining to TRUE
Set network.http.proxy.pipelining to TRUE
Set network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to number 8 (requests at once).
Now right click anywhere and select New->Integer . Name it as nglayout.initialpaint.delay and set the values 0 .
This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives. This will again help you to increase the performance of browser.
Now we will do some settings for simultaniously connections.
Settings for Simultaneous Connections:
Look for the following Entries and change the values of each entry.
network.http.max-connections = 96
network.http.max-connections-per-server = 32
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy = 24
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server = 12
You have to follow the same method to change the setting. Double Click on each entry and modify the values for each
Pls. Note that doing the above settings, with some of the pages you can face some loading problem and for those who are using Broadband with Firefox will experience much faster speed from now onwards.
