How to Make Mozilla Firefox Faster

Hello everyone. I will show you today how to make mozilla firefox faster than it already has. 




If you make any mistake at the modifications I could not be regarded as responsible of your act !!!

* 1st: We will accelerate the start of firefox :
Right click on you firefox shortcut ( it works just on the shortcut ) and go to properties, after , on target, add this ” /Prefetch:1 ” at the end ( you will have something like this “C:Program FilesMozilla Firefoxfirefox.exe” /Prefetch:1 ” ) dont forget the space before /Prefetch:1


* 2nd: We will increase the speed of loading pages :
In the address bar of Firefox, type ” about: config ” then press enter. After search using filter the following values :
– network.dns.disableIPv6
– network.http.pipelining
– network.http.proxy.pipelining
– network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

and by double clicking on values :

– set “network.dns.disableIPv6” to “true” ,
– set “network.http.pipelining” to “true” ,
– Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true” and ,
– Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 9 ( this means it will make 9 requests at once) you can make 30 or 100, but the network administrators do not like it too )


* 3rd: 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 receives.)

* 4th: We will create values to optimize the rendering and loading of pages:
– Right-click anywhere and select New-> Channel. Name it “content.notify.backoffcount” and set it’s value to “five 5”

– Right-click anywhere and select New-> Channel. Name it “ui.submenuDelay” and set it’s value to ” 0″

– Search the channel named “plugin.expose_full_path” and set it to “true”

* 5th: The last one , we wxill disble caching of recent pages visited:
– search the channel named ” browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers” and set it to “0”

– Right-click anywhere and select New-> Channel. Name it “browser.cache.memory.capacity” and set it’s value to “0”


And then, restart Firefox to take into account the new settings.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
