Normally FF 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.
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 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once (although I believe that FF may not use the full 30)
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 FF waits before it acts on information it recieves.
Great tweaks, Glaswegian! :sayyes:
That last one has really speeded up page loading times. Do you know what its default setting was before changing to 0? It used to take about 3-5 seconds before anything appeared, now it's almost immediate. It feels even quicker than Opera.
To move Firefox bookmarks into Opera, go to the toolbar.
Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks.
Then File > Import Netscape/Firefox Bookmarks.
It will name the folder Netscape Bookmarks and will be found at the bottom of the list.
Opera's bookmarks file will be found inside it's profile folder and is called opera6.adr
