How to Speed up Firefox 4.0: Tweaks & Tricks…

I feel the need… the need for SPEED…

type “about:config” in the address bar of your firefox

nglayout.initialpaint.delay = 0 integer
content.notify.interval = 500000
content.notify.ontimer = true Boolean value
content.max.tokenizing.time = 1500000
(default value: triple the value ofcontent.notify.interval)

content.interrupt.parsing = true
content.switch.threshold = 500000 integer (default:750000)
content.maxtextrun : 8191
content.notify.backoffcount : 5
browser.search.openintab = true Boolean value

layout.word_select.eat_space_to_next_word = false Boolean value

network.http.max-connections = 48 integer (default:30)
network.http.max-connections-per-server = 16 integer (default:15)
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server = 8 integer (default:6)
network.http.request.max-start-delay = 0 integer (default:10)
network.http.pipelining = true Boolean value (default:false)
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests = 8 integer (default:4)

network.prefetch-next = false Boolean value (default:true)
browser.cache.memory.enable = true Boolean value
browser.cache.memory.capacity = 1 GB RAM – 18432
2 GB RAM – 24576
4 GB RAM – 30720

browser.sessionhistory.max_entries = 5 (default:50)
browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers = 0 (zero) to disable session history.
This will reduce your Ram consumption by a 50%.
(default:-1)
config.trim_on_minimize = true Boolean value
signed.applets.codebase_principal_support : true (default:false)
plugin.expose_full_path : true (default:false)
ui.submenuDelay = 0 (zero)

optional:
network.http.keep-alive = true (it is the default value)
network.http.keep-alive.timeout = 600 (default: 115 on XP)
network.dnsCacheExpiration = 3600
network.dnsCacheEntries = 1000

restart your firefox and feel the speed faster than a speeding bullet…
