Firefox has been my web-browser of choice thanks to the stable performance and customization possibilities it offers, in the quest for having a faster web-browsing experience with Firefox I had tried reducing tab-overload, optimize memory usage and even trying an CPU optimized version. SpeedyFox is yet another free utility which promises to make your Firefox start-up upto 3 times faster with faster loading of browsing history and operations with Cookies.
What SpeedyFox does is that it optimizes fragmented SQLITE database files which are used to store your Firefox data resulting in faster overall experience.
Just Follow the simple steps below to enhance you web-browsing experience:
- In Firefox, Goto Tools -> Options.
- Uncheck all options as shown below.
- Click OK to exit.
SpeedUp Firefox Browsing:
Type “about:config” in the address bar and press ENTER key.
Scroll down and look for the entries below and alter entries as follows:
- Set “network.http.pipelining” To “true”
- Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” To “true”
- Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to any number say 25. This settings decides how many concurrent requests/connections the browser can make to a server, Please keep in mind that using a high value can trigger flood control limits on some servers and you can be denied access to the website.
- Right-click and select New-> Integer. Name the new value “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set value to “0?. This value decides the amount of time the firefox waits before it acts on information it receives and displays it.
Without this tweak the browser will make one request to a web page at a time, When you enable pipelining it will make several requests at once, which speeds up page loading time.
