PostSubject: Firefox - increase speed limit   August 1st 2008, 4:20 am

Found this in another website 2 months ago and forgot to share it, and forgot the source website url, anyway this worked for me in many websites and with most of youtube's videos , do the foloing:


Write in the url text area : "about:config"


now in the "filter" text area write this: "Pipe"
it should look like this:


now there's 3 values we will change it 1 by 1

change the 1st value "Network.http.pipelining" from false to true by right click on the "false" and click "toggle"
do the same thing with the 3rd value "Network.http.proxy.pipelining" .

now for the 2nd vlaue right click on the value (supposed to be 4 if not changed yet) and click "Modify" now change it to 30 ... if you have very fast internet connection you can get it to 50 ...

it should look like this:


now restart the browser and try watching a youtube video, its supposed to load faster.

I hope it worked for you, good luck all

When I filter "pipe" I get 4 values: the 3 you said plus:

network.http.pipelining.ssl

Do I change something on this?

I'd also suggest giving Google Chrome a try smile. I find it quite a bit faster than Firefox
