i've just done this and it has definitely improved the speed, especially on here, which lately has been very slow for me.

here is the c&p guide i used.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
To get started, open your Firefox web browser.
In the address/location bar, type [about:config] and then press your Enter key. (NOTE: DON’T TYPE THE BRACKETS.)

Tweak #1:
In the Filter bar, type [network.http.pipelining]. Then, double-click on this line under Preference Name in order to change the value from false to true. (if it's already true, move on to the next tweak)

Tweak #2:
In the Filter bar, type [network.http.pipelining.maxrequests]. Then, double-click on this line under Preference Name and change the value from 4 to a higher number, anywhere from 10 to 30. I set mine to 30.

Tweak #3:
In the Filter bar, type [network.http.proxy.pipelining]. Then, double-click on this line under Preference Name in order to change the value from false to true.

Tweak #4:
In the Filter bar, type [network.dns.disableIPv6]. Then, double-click on this line under Preference Name in order to change the value from false to true.

Tweak #5:
In the Filter bar, type [plugin.expose_full_path]. Then, double-click on this line under Preference Name in order to change the value from false to true.

Tweak #6:
In the Filter bar, type [network.protocol-handler.external.ms-help]. Now, you are going to create a new Preference Name with an Integer Value. To do this, right-click on this line under Preference Name and select New, then Integer. In the New Integer value box type in [nglayout.initialpaint.delay] and click OK. Then in the Enter Integer value box type 0

(that’s a zero) and click OK.


Tweak #7:
In the Filter bar again type [network.protocol-handler.external.ms-help]. Now, you are going to create another new Preference Name with an Integer Value. To do this, right-click on this line under Preference Name and select New, then Integer. In the New Integer value box type in [content.notify.backoffcount] and click OK. Then in the Enter Integer value box type [5] and click OK.

Tweak #8:
In the Filter bar again type [network.protocol-handler.external.ms-help]. Now, you are going to create another new Preference Name with an Integer Value. To do this, right-click on this line under Preference Name and select New, then Integer. In the New Integer value box type in [ui.submenuDelay] and click OK. Then in the Enter Integer value box type 0

(that’s a zero) and click OK.


Now, close your web browser and restart it.
You should now be browsing faster.

No idea what these tweaks are doing but seems pretty fast. Just wondering why mozilla don't already have these tweaks enabled if it's meant to be faster? Recon these tweaks can fuck firefox up a bit?

Seem to think you know alot about me considering you've never met me and i can't remember speaking to you on here at all?! Oh well was wrong to say that i guess. Didn't see the need for Fes to get involved though but oh well he can't help it.
