speed up firefox

Recommended Posts

Hi people, How this "modprobe.conf" file looks to you. Because I feel that firefox is not very fast in my system;

alias eth0 eepro100

alias sound-slot-0 snd-cmipci

install snd-cmipci /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install snd-cmipci && { /sbin/modprobe snd-pcm-oss; /bin/true; }

install usb-interface /sbin/modprobe usb-uhci; /sbin/modprobe ehci-hcd; /bin/true

remove snd-cmipci { /sbin/modprobe -r snd-pcm-oss; } ; /sbin/modprobe -r --first-time --ignore-remove snd-cmipci

#Turn off IPv6

alias net-pf-10 off

alias net-pf-2 #ipv4

install ipv4 /bin/true

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Found this settings for firefox that seem to add some speed;

user_pref("general.smoothScroll", true);

user_pref("network.image.imageBehavior", 0);

user_pref("network.http.max-connections", 48);

user_pref("network.http.max-connections-per-server", 16);

user_pref("network.http.pipelining", true);

user_pref("network.http.pipelining.firstrequest", true);

user_pref("network.http.pipelining.maxrequests", 100);

user_pref("network.http.proxy.pipelining", true);

user_pref("nglayout.initialpaint.delay", 100);

i added the nglayout.initialpaint.delay to my about:config and it really impressed me. with the other settings increased, it worked better but still the networking dragged. it is considerably better.

If you've typed about:config in the address bar, filtered for nglayout, and it's not in the list, you can add it by: right-clicking in the preference list window, select New Integer, enter preference name, then enter integer value.

 

Note that there is controversy about whether this nglayout.initialpaint.delay setting actually helps or hinders overall performance. You've heard the pro side, here's one posting on the con side:

Hi,

 

Now there is an extension "Faster fox" which does all the above discussed tweaks automaticall. Further more it also gives options to manually - graphically adjust them from preferences.

 

It is very good and highly rate. The practical speed improvement is great.

 

Have fun!!

the turbo gives speed increase, iv had the below tweaks for nearly a year but think Opera is faster and after some configuration is just as good.

 

Turbo

1. Type about:config into the URL bar & ENTER

2. In the filter bar, enter turbo

3. "browser.turbo.enabled" should appear. Double click to enable it.

4. Restart browser

 

1. Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

 

network.http.pipelining

network.http.proxy.pipelining

network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

 

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: (by double clicking them)

 

Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true"

 

Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true"

 

Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once. (I changed mine to 100, works great.)

 

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

Found this one in the AMD forums

 

5. Set the value of nglayout.initialpaint.delay to "0"

 

Taken from http://www.computerbb.org/about150.html

 

seems to really improve page loading times

-C

My system doesn't have :-

 

5. Set the value of nglayout.initialpaint.delay to "0"

 

so I just set the other 4 values.

 

YES.....seems much better. Ebuyer is usually quite slow.........now wizz. Hope the improvement lasts.

 

Thanks

That's why you create it:
