       This tutorial will basically sum up speeding up Firefox. I will also post add-ons that are very helpful for smooth browsing on firefox.

       First make sure you download Firefox. Why? Because its much faster, updated frequently, and allows you to do much more then any other browser.

Download Firefox

Speeding Up Firefox

      Alright these are some simple and easy changes that will speed up Firefox by about 300%!

Pipelining:- Pipelining is what loads every single page you click. At default, it is set to download 1 thing at a time. That can take a long time, so were going to make it load 30 at a time! This will speed up web browsing quite a bit.

               Steps to follow:-


  • Open up Firefox
  • Type “about:config” in the URL bar
  • In the config, search “pipelining”
  • Look for a file called “network.http.pipelining”
  • Double click network.http.pipelining, which will set it to true
  • Now look for “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests”
  • Double click network.http.pipelining.maxrequests and set the value to 30 NOT HIGHER!
  • Now Restart firefox

note how much faster web pages will load! (especially

   Firefox Ultimate Optimizer:- When Firefox is running, it uses quite a lot of ram. This can slow down other programs that you may have running and web browsing. This program will cut it down by about 95%!

How much memory do you use?

  • Open Firefox
  • Open control manager (Ctrl+Alt+delete)
  • On the control manger click the “Processes” tab
  • Under Image Name look for “firefox.exe”
  • Look at the Mem Usage

Firefox Ultimate Optimizer Tutorial

  • Download Firefox Ultimate Optimizer
  • Extract it to you desktop
  • While Firefox is running, run the program
  • Check your memory usage again

     note how much less memory (RAM) is being used by Firefox!

Faster Fox:- Faster Fox is an add-on that loads page links before you click them. For instance, if you were on YouTube’s front page, it would be loading every link, video, etc. That way when you click that link, there is much less loading time.

Do all that and Firefox run, so fast, you can’t imagine .


    Add-ons are the second reason I use Firefox. Firefox has so many help add-on’s. This is a list of some of my favorites and must haves.

Adblock Plus

       This blocks advertisements from showing up when searching the web.


     Allow active content to run only from sites you trust, and protect yourself against XSS and Clickjacking attacks.

Enjoy your faster firefox 😉
