how to make mozilla more faster in LINUX

source : http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/338

Before making any changes, please make a backup of .mozilla/firefox/——–.default/prefs.js for your own safety. prefs.js is a file that stores all of your history and bookmarks from Firefox.

 

  • First open Firefox.

 

  • Type about:config (without quotes) in the Firefox address bar and then click “Enter”. This command opens a configuration page that allows the user to change advanced system settings in Firefox.

  • Speed up page loading/rendering time in Firefox. Right-click anywhere in the “about:config” window, click on “New” and then select “String”. Name the string nglayout.initialpaint.delay (without quotes). Enter a value of “0” and then click “OK”. This tweak decreases the amount of time Firefox waits to render a page from 250 milliseconds to zero. Make the same process and name the string content.notify.interval and enter a value of “0”.

 

  • Force Firefox to release reserved system RAM when the browser is minimized. Right-click anywhere in the “about:config” window, click on “New” and then select “Boolean”. Name the entry config.trim_on_minimize (without quotes). Change the value to “True” and then click “OK”. This setting forces Firefox to only reserve about 10 MB of system memory while minimized.

 

  • Normally Firefox only sends one or two tunnels to the website. However, the more tunnels you use the faster you go. To change this, type in filter bar network.http.pipelining.maxrequests and change the value to “150”.
    Attention: The more tunnels you use, the more bandwidth you use, meaning you could use as tunnels as you want but that would probably kill the sites bandwidth if everyone did that. 150 is a very good value.

 

  • Type network.http.pipelining in filter bar, and set it to “True” by double clicking it.

 

  • Type network.http.proxy.pipelining in filter bar, and set it to “True” by double clicking it.
