What about those of us who are forced to use dial up?

"What about those of us who are forced to use dial up?"
I have no way of knowing, I've only used Firefox on DSL. In all reality, on dialup any speed changes are minimal and not very easy to notice. Unless you have poor line quality, and it gets repaired.

I noticed a slight change on dialup, but I would advise setting "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to something like double what it is, set it from the default of 4 to 8, otherwise you'll choke your dialup connection.

Forced, FORCED, FORCED I choose to use dialup, thankyou. Ever tried to take your broadband on a trip? Ever get hit with a computer trashing injection from your friends on the net? Ever had your fast connection no better than dialup? Switch to dial up you will no longer be disappointed in your broadband connection. No you won't be doing a 10 meg file in 2 minutes or less, or loading pages faster than you can read, but hey, at least you are surfing with confidence. In ten years, I have never had a phone outage, and at ten bucks a month I can't beat the price. What am I missing by not having broadband, who knows but I'm not sitting around crying about it, and I'm saving about 35 dollars a month in the process.
