Firefox 4, the latest version of Mozilla Firefox, was too slow for me. The browser looked good in design, so I upgraded it(regreted it), but in terms of browsing, it was slow, especially when opening new tabs, and got slower when I had several tabs opened.
Here how to make Firefox 4 faster:
- Open a new tab in Firefox 4, type about:config. If you get a warning, just click the button.
- Then type network.http.pipelining in the Filter bar.
- Double click on network.http.pipelining, this will make the value to True.
- Same with network.http.pipelining.maxrequests, double click on it, now enter a value of 8 or 10.
Other changes you could make in order to make Firefox 4 run faster:
network.http.max-connections, change it to 100.
network.http.max-connections-per-server, change it to 20.
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server, change it to 8.
Restart your Firefox 4 browser, you will notice that Firefox 4 is a bit faster. Opening a new window or tab should be faster. Pages should load faster in Firefox 4 now. It worked for me!
