Here’re some tips to tune and tweak your Firefox when it getting slower and slower ( or upon installation ) :

Modify the firefox config file

It’s easy to modify, just type “about:config” in your firefox browser, then search for the following parameters and change the value ( just like how you change your registry ) :

  • network.http.pipeliningset the value from false to true.
  • network.http.pipelining.maxrequests, change the value from default 4 to a higher value i.e. 8
  • network.http.proxy.pipelining, set the value from false to true.
  • browser.sessionstore.interval, change the value from 10000 (10 secs) to 120000 (2 minutes) to increase the firefox backup the session restore point interval.
  • Add the following parameter ( New->Integer ) and set the value to 0, nglayout.initialpaint.delay.
