You have may noticed many changes from the previous version, specially the address bar, and many people have asked me if the old tricks to speed your browser up are still working.


The answer is yes, and here you can find the most common tricks that are used by many people:
  1. Open Firefox, and type about:config in the address bar. Don’t worry about the warning that comes out. about-config_warning
  2. Use the filter above to find network.http.pipelining and set it to True by double clicking on it.
  3. Create a new boolean value named network.http.pipelining.firstrequest and set that to True, as well.
  4. Find network.http.pipelining.maxrequests, double click on it, and change its value to 8.
  5. Now look for network.http.proxy.pipelining and again set it to True.
  6. Create two new integers named nglayout.initialpaint.delay and content.notify.interval, setting them to 0.
  7. Now restart your browser and check a few heavy-loading websites to see if those changes worked or not.
