I'm looking for a Firefox tweek that used to be posted on here. I forgot the name of who posted it...I know his avatar used to be the bad guy from sonic the hedgehog and then changed to the red x (when images dont load) and morphed into a robot. Heh yeah...I remember that.

[EDIT] Here's the tweak for w[censored]ver wants it

quote:

masternewmedia.com

" "Here's something for broadband people that will really speed Firefox up:

1. Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining
network.http.proxy.pipelining
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

Normally the browser 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.

2. 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.

3. 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 the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.

If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!"

I was looking for the same the other day....the threads seem to disappear after they get so old. Just do a manual search for "firefox" -- that's how I came across it
