You a fortunate (that you like dial-up)Many of us got fed up with overloaded servers and being dumped-off while on dial-up. 2 1/2 years now on DSL- never a problem! I have had my actual phone line go dead in a storm, but the DSL stayed up & running.

At one time, whenever one googled Firefox, this thread was linked on the first page of the search results. I'm not sure where it is now. Happy ebaying. lol

"WORKS! Thanks!"

Glad to see it still helps folks from time to time. Ironically, I built a new machine last year and neglected to do these config changes. I didn't realize it until you posted to me. LOL!

It makes sense because the pipelining allows for multiple concurrent outstanding blocking requests. Thanks for the info.

Thanks, KoRn; I had done this on my ME a few years back and forgot about if on my new XP — it does speed things up nicely.

"Any hints for Safari?"

None that I immediately know of. Try googling the settings I posted about with "Safari" as one of the search terms. That would be a place to start anyway.

"Does it works in firefox 3 too?"

Yes it certainly does. I believe they have some of the settings enabled by default now.

when I do the following:
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.

I set it to 0, restart Firefox, only to find it has changed it back to 600. Will not keep the user setting.

I just updated FF, and thought of these settings.

I made these adjustments, and they still make a HUGE difference with regard to loading pages faster!

Just FYI:

I setup a new machine awhile back, and happened to recall writing this thread back in what seems like a millennium ago. For the heck of it, I went into the FF Config, and applied all of the settings mentioned here, and they still do work quite well. I’m a little surprised Firefox doesn’t include these settings/values by ‘out of the box - by default upon install. It’s my understanding that the only folks this isn’t good for is dial-up users, and by now they have to be a slim minority on the net.

After applying the settings Firefox performs much better on the net. It even makes FR seem to run a little faster. :p

Happy FReeping!

Do you know if this will work for sea monkey?

I like sea monkey because of things I need to do related to my business, printing shipping labels among other things it works best for me. It is slow, I type 75wpm+ and it can’t keep up with me. I am desperate to speed it up. I’m not using any installed themes so that isn’t the issue.

I gave up on Firefox a couple of months ago. The constant releases, breaking plug-ins (the best reason to use Firefox) and slower and slower response times, bloat, etc.

I only use it still on my Linux box, as it performs well there, but my Mac and PCs have gone Safari.

Apparently some other folks have gotten that. I’d ignore it.

Of course, warranty warnings usually encourage me to dig into something further. lol

I am sure we can find several sources that would refund the price of Fox Fire.

I also so found that if you don’t want to post not logging in will also speed up response. I can watch from my iPad and come back to my PC if I want to post.
