I re-found something today that I had forgotten about. It outlines a couple of quick methods you can use to speed up the Firefox engine and make pages load more quickly for you. I set this up again this evening and see a noticeable speed increase.
Here are five steps for speeding up your browser.
- In your address bar visit: about:config
- Find: network.dns.disableIPv6. Set “true”
- Find: network.http.pipelining. Set “true”
- Find: network.http.pipelining.maxrequests. Set “8”
- Find: network.http.proxy.pipelining. Set “true”
This little trick has been around for a while. I wanted to get it out there for anyone that hadn’t known about it. Also make sure I write it down so I don’t forget it again the next time I re-install (which I do far too often).
i understand the pipelining stuff, but why disable ipv6??
