Arrow Tips to speed up Firefox

Some of these tweaks are not a part of the Fasterfox plugin.

There is a noticeable improvement with these tweaks, especially if you are using Firefox 2.

1) In your location bar, type or copy/paste:

Code:
about:config
2) In the filter bar type :
Code:
network.http.pipelining
Normally it says " false " , Double click it so it becomes " true "

Go to the filter bar again and type :
Code:
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests
Change it to 8

Go to the filter bar again and type :
Code:
network.http.proxy.pipelining
Normally it says " false " , Double click it so it becomes " true "


Go to the filter bar again and type :
Code:
network.dns.disableIPv6
Normally it says " false " , Double click it so it becomes " true "

Go to the filter bar again and type :
Code:
plugin.expose_full_path
Normally it says " false " , Double click it so it becomes " true "

3) Now we are gonna make a new integer
Code:
Right click -> New -> Integer Name : nglayout.initialpaint.delay Value : 0
Code:
Right click -> New -> Integer Name : content.notify.backoffcount Value : 5
Code:
Right click -> New -> Integer Name : ui.submenuDelay Value : 0
