Firefox tweaks

Below are some interesting tweaks for Firefox.


To tweak Firefox, this must be done first:
In the address bar, type the following: about: config and press Enter. Click on the button "I'll be careful, I promise!"

All values which are tweaked manually will be displayed with bold letters.

Network tweaks

These tweaks are very useful for Firefox users with a broadband internet connection. Type in the field for the Filter the following: network.http. All keys which starts with network.http will be shown now.

Tweak 1
Double-click with the left mouse button on the line network.http.pipelining to change the value from False to True.

Tweak 2
Double-click on the line network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to change the value from 4 to 8 and click "OK".
The value must be between 4 and 8 but never higher than 8! If the value is changed correctly, all internet pages will load faster now!
