Hey Dream, I'd advise you to use the SEARCH button before you make such posts again. This topic with the exact same cotent+some more has been posted quite sometime back. See this post: http://www.astahost.com/index.php?showtopic=2199&hl= - If you have anything more to add, you should Search first, and add it to that thread. No use having multiple threads on the same topic. This will only make you loose out on your valuable hosting credits due to repeat posting - a situation which can clearly be avoided by a little careful usage of the Search button. Credits Adjusted (-5 days). TOPIC CLOSED. And come on man, you can do much better.. you're so well off with graphics.. come up with cool stuff for the Designing forum.
This should only be done with broadband users, I have not tried for dial-up users but it is not suggested
To speed up your Firefox browser and allow better load times
None, this tutorial is step by step
mark down your unaltered state first just in case of a screwup and you can revert back to your old settings.
1. Bring up a new tab and type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:
network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests
Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.
2. Alter the entries as follows:
Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true"
Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true"
Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.
3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set its value to "0". This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.
4. Close Firefox and reload.
DONE! You should notice a faster browser and you should be happy, I myself DID NOT COME UP WITH THIS TUTORIAL, i am only bringing this info here so people can see it, if this info has been posted already (I am pretty sure it did not as I did a search on it with the search button) mod please remove this topic and know I am sorry.
