I found this info on the Firefox site, and should only be done by broadband users.

I did it myself, and it works wonders!!

Not to rain on anyone's parade, but noticing massive improvements in browsing by enabling pipelining is probably mostly psychological. Pipelining has to be supported on the server side, and there are a great many servers out there that still haven't enabled pipelining. Even if that's in place, the only people likely to experience significant increases in performance are folks on high bandwidth, high latency connections, because all pipelining does is allow multiple requests to be in flight at once - on a low latency connection, the response time will be such that pipelining will make very little difference at all to the bottom line. Try it and see - get a stopwatch and time page loads with and without pipelining enabled, but make sure you clear the cache between runs ;)

You can also just put this:

// Enable pipelining:
user_pref("network.http.pipelining", true);
user_pref("network.http.proxy.pipelining", true);
user_pref("network.http.pipelining.maxrequests", 100);

in your user.js file.

I wonder if there is a way to speed up scrolling to the speed that the page up / page down buttons scroll, with the smooth scrolling option turned on, but by pressing the up or down arrow, or clicking on the up or down scroll arrows with the mouse. The up/down arrows it is painfully slow scrolling and the mouse click over the up or down scroll arrows is even slower. This was one area that IE was quicker.

BTW, if you go many places on Microsoft's site using Firefox you'll get the "Warning: You are viewing this page with an unsupported Web browser." message. Simply install the User Agent Switcher extension and flip to Firefox saying it's IE before visiting. No more messages.

Have you figured out how to do it with the new version of firefox? (1.0 not the prerelease)

Since I'd changed this I have been having trouble loading certain pages (loooong delays) but that could be a coincidence. E.g. search pages on ebay loaded fast but the actual auction pages didn't. Changed integer down to 8 - see if that helps...

argh. Pages (exact same pages) respond fine with IE -so it's not ebay that's doing it, it's gotta be firefox.

changed
network.http.request.max-start-delay

to 0 and seems to have fixed it. (I walk where angels fear to tread, I guess...)

Could you add me to your ping list?

And if I may ask a question of anyone...

Any idea how to make FireFox let me use features on my EZBoard (Or other) message board? Using IE, I just highlight the text and then hit "Bold" or "Quote" or whatever, and it puts the little prompt things on each side.

FireFox won't let me do that...It only opens up a box where I'm supposed to type the text I wanted bolded or quoted or whatever. Which obviously creates a problem when quoting an entire article, or whatever. Or God forbid, trying to bold AND quote something...

Thanks!
