I just tried this and it works great. I found it on another site and wanted to pass it along:

Here's something for broadband people that will really speed Firefox up:

1.Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

2. Alter the entries as follows:

Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true" from False

Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true" from False

Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once. From 4

3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set its value to "0". This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.

If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!

Yep, that's a must do on Firefox. I did it about 10 minutes after I started using it and was very pleased. ;-D

Just wish they'd fix that bug on adding BBCode for quoting and putting emoticons in the middle of messages... :-[

Have you had any problems with this?? I read that certain sites wouldn't load but I haven't noticed it yet.

I do remember getting this from here earlier this year, but for those you haven't, I've seen no problems since doing it months ago ;-D

Every so often it won't go to a page, but IE does the same thing. The only problem I have with the program is the emoticon/code thing.

Sometimes if you go to a page with a lot of picture links the pictures might not all load right away or at all...but other than that, no major load issues (except for possible ad servers that I really don't want to load anyway). :-)
