Firefox Questions

Postby BeefSandwiches » Wed Jun 14, 2006 10:24 am

I FINALLY downloaded and started using Firefox after some problems with IE, but I have a couple questions:

1. Firefox loads much slower at first than my IE. If I load the same page side-by-side, IE is almost always quite a bit faster.

2. Is there anyway to load my IE Favorites after installing Firefox? I thought I had selected 'Yes' to that option during the install, but it didn't happen.

Thanks.

I posted this a while back...should speed up the browser a little.

- 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

- Alter the entries as follows:
Set "network.HttP.pipelining" to "true"
Set "network.HttP.proxy.pipelining" to "true"
Set "network.HttP.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30.
(This means it will make 30 requests at once.)

- 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.

As for your favorites, make sure that they are in right folder.
If you are using XP Home, they should be in C:/Documents and Setting/All Users/Favorites.

Or, if multiple users are setup on your computer, they should be in C:/Documents and Settings/%Username&/Favorites.

See if you can find out where IE is pulling your favorites from and simply copy them into your Favorites folder in Docs&Set. Favorites are simply saved as files on your computer and you should be able to move them into the correct folder and use them for that.

And easier way may be to open Firefox, go to File>Import... then make sure MS IE is selected, click next and be sure that Favorites is selected from the list (you can also import cookies and forms and such). Then just let the wizard do its work. You can move bookmarks around in Firefox in Bookmarks>Manage Bookmarks.

Way to go on choosing Firefox!

Are you some kind of super-computer guru or did you learn this trick somewhere?

This is a small program that pretty much does the same thing.

I always felt firefox was faster but I did the tweaks a while back anyways. They work well. Also, there are plugins that will help speed it up as well.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
