How To Speed up Firefox | Tweak internet browser speed

Okay so everybody saw lately Google Chrome which is preety damn fast internet browser. Interesting why did they manage to make their own browser while they pay 70% of Firefox revenue to be on their bar right? Of coursde they just want to gather more info about you 😉 Thats the theory of google working with FBI. Either way, lets speed up mozilla firefox a bit!

Stuff shown here is simple to be made and will really make the browser work better and faster .
For starters lets stop Firefox from eating so much RAM! This may preven loose of your data so you wont need files recovery. Click Here to get Registry Toolkit – Registry Cleaner Tool. Increase Computer Speed And Stability By Removing Corrupted Registry Files With Registry Toolkit .

Anyways lets get back to business.
Tak off the amount of RAM Firefox uses for its cache:
1. Type in browser window about:config
2. Find – browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewer
3. Set the value to 0

Reduce RAM usage to around 10MB when Firefox is minimized [i bet this kills your memory sometimes with many tabs open!]:

1. Open Firefox and go to the Address Bar. Type 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. Enter.
4. Select True
5. Restart Mozilla Firefox.

Increase the Speed at Which Firefox loads pages

1. Type about:config into the address bar and hit Enter.
(Normally the browser will make 1 request to a web page at a time which is wack. 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 12.

This means it will make 12 requests at once.

3. Lastly, right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it nglayout.initialpaint.delay and set its value to 0

And that is how we speed up newest version of Mozilla Firefox 3.0.8 and all other versions.
