Firefox is my main browser, although on occasion I have switched to Maxthon, Opera and Google Chrome. Getting Firefox at peak performance is always a good thing, for me. Here is an interesting little trick to speed up Firefox.

To implement this tweak, and speed up Firefox a considerable amount, follow the steps below:

  1. Open Firefox, and in the address bar, type: about:config
  2. A warning dialog box will pop up, click the button marked: I’ll be careful, I promise!
  3. Just under the tabs, there is a filter dialog box. In there, type: pipelining.
  4. Double click ‘network.http.pipelining’ to set the value to : true.
  5. Double click to open ‘network.http.pipelining.maxrequests’. Set value: 6

Restart Firefox and check the speed. You ought to see a significant improvement.
