Configure firefox to load web pages faster

The solution is quite easy. You have to enter "about:config" in your address bar of the firefox browser. Here you find many options for your browser. Of special interest are the options for pipelining. When pipelining is enabled, the browser can send several requests at once, resulting in shorter loading times and an enhanced browsing experience.So the steps are:

  1. Enter "about:config" into the address bar
  2. Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true"
  3. Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true"
  4. Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to a higher number, for example "15" (this sets how many requests are made at once)
  5. You can also set a new value by right-clicking and selecting New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to "0". This value defines the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on the received information.
