These 8 Hacks Will Make Your Firefox Browser Lightening Fast!  
 
Firefox is quick, however, you could make it even more nippy if you know how!

Saturday, March 29, 2014 Mozilla Firefox is proving to be one of the most powerful browsers off late. Plugins enable some things to become easier which is of great relevance to web-developers. Meanwhile, tweaking/hacking the right settings and you could end up with a much faster web browser, even doubling your speed in some cases.

Mozilla, Friefox, hack, pipelining, Render, loading, interruptions, Flash, cache size, TraceMonkey




1.Enable pipelining

To enable it:

Type about:config in the address bar > double-click network.http.pipelining and network.http.proxy.pipelining so their values are set to true > double-click network.http.pipelining.maxrequests > set this to 8.

This will dramatically reduce page download times.

2.Render quickly

To enable it:

Type about:config and press Enter > right-click (Apple users ctrl-click) somewhere in the window and select New > Integer > Type content.notify.interval as your preference name > click OK, enter 500000 > click OK again > Right-click again in the window and select New > Boolean > create a value called content.notify.ontimer > Set it to True.

3.Faster loading

To enable it:

Type about:config and press Enter > right-click in the window and select New > Integer > Type content.switch.threshold > click OK > enter 250000 > click OK.

4.No interruptions

To enable it:

Type about:config, press Enter > right-click in the window > select New > Boolean > Type content.interrupt.parsing > click OK > set the value to False and click OK.

5.Block Flash

Installing the Flashblock extension will block all Flash applets from loading, web pages will therefore display much more quickly.

6.Increase the cache size

To enable it:

Type about:config and press Enter > right-click anywhere in the window > select New > Integer > Type browser.cache.memory.capacity > click OK > enter 65536 and click OK > restart your browser to get the new, larger cache.

7.Enable TraceMonkey

This new Firefox feature converts slow Javascript into super-speedy x86 code. Install the latest nightly build, launch it, type about:config in the address bar and press Enter. Type JIT in the filter box, then double-click javascript.options.jit.chrome and javascript.options.jit.content to change their values to true.

8.Compress data

Install the Java applet toonel.net. It will re-route your web traffic through its own server, compressing it at the same time. It can even compress JPEGs by allowing you to reduce their quality. This comes in handy to cut your data transfer, particularly useful if you're on a limited data account service.

Good tips, although you could have added a description of what each directive means.
