    3 Hacks for Firefox To Double Your Internet Browsing Speed..

    3 Hacks for Firefox To Double Your Internet Browsing Speed..
    HACK 1 - Reduce the amount of RAM Firefox uses for it’s cache feature!

    Here’s how to fix it:
    1. Type “about:config” (no quotes) in the adress bar in the browser.
    2. Find “browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewer”
    2. Set it’s value to “0“;(Zero)


    HACK 2 - Increase the Speed in Which Firefox loads pages!

    1. Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit Enter.
    (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 10.
    This means it will make 10 requests at once.
    3. Lastly, right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0“;.(Zero)
    This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives. If you’re using a broadband connection you’ll load pages faster now.

    Optionally (for even faster web browsing) here are some more options for your about:config (you might have to create some of these entries by Right Click –> New– > Interger or String
    network.dns.disableIPv6: set “false”
    “content.notify.backoffcount”: set “5“; (Five)
    “plugin.expose_full_path”: set “true”.
    “ui.submenuDelay”: set “0"; (zero)


    HACK 3 - Reduce RAM usage to 10mb when Firefox is minimized!

    This little hack will drop Firefox’s RAM usage down to 10 Mb when minimized:
    1. Open Firefox and go to the Address Bar. Type in about:config and then press Enter.
    2. Right Click in the page and select New -> Boolean.
    3. In the box that pops up enter “config.trim_on_minimize”. Press Enter.
    4. Now select True and then press Enter.
    5. Restart Firefox.
