Speed Up Firefox via about:config

source: two videos from Tekzilla,


1. 1. In the address bar, type “about:config”, and in the filter bar, type network.http to filter the list

2. 2. Double click “network.http.pipelining”, which changes the value from false to true.

3. 3. Double click “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to change it’s value to true

4. 4. Double click “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” and change the value to 30.

5. 5. Next, close the and restart the browser to have the changes take effect, the next time a page loads, you should see a noticeable increase in the speed at which it loads, because instead of loading each thing one step at a time, it loads everything at once.


1. 1. In the address bar, type “about:config”

2. 2. Right click anywhere and choose “new”, then “integer”

3. 3. Name the new integer “nglayout.initialpaint.delay”, press “ok” and set the value to “0”. This is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.

4. 4. While it doesn’t load the page any faster, it lets you see what has been loaded sooner.
