Author Topic: Howto: Speed up Firefox web browser  (Read 3749 times)

Here's the link to a tutorial at Ubuntu Geek. The easy-to-follow graphical presentation claims a 3x to 30x speed up in Firefox. What do you think?

8 tweaks in all:

1. network.http.pipelining
2. network.http.pipelining.maxrequests
3. network.http.proxy.pipelining
4. network.dns.disableIPv6
5. plugin.expose_full_path
6. nglayout.initialpaint.delay
7. content.notify.backoffcount
8. ui.submenuDelay

I tried them all in VL 5.8 Std, with no negative effect. I did not bother with supplemental tips at the end of the tutorial. Feedback to the above tutorial claims that FasterFox does all this out of the box.
