Firefox 3 about:config tweaks

able to speed up your browser and do other things
With some people complaining about lagging in the forums with this new layout, i decided i should post some tweaks to the about:config that could help you. Now this will only work in firefox so anyone using opera or ie just press the back button now . Ok, now these are all originally taken from here, and i am only giving some of the more useful ones, however if you do not know how to do this i recommend you go to the site, it will help you as my intention is to leave you with the commands assuming you know how to implement them.

1) Disable Prefetch (Helpful for frequent Google searcher, low-speed internet connection or low RAM)

network.prefetch-next = False

2) Extend Spell check to forms

layout.spellcheckDefault = 2
Change Value from 1 to 2

3) Speed Tweaks

network.http.pipelining false to true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests 30 to 8
network.http.max-connections 30 to 96
network.http.max-connections-per-server 15 to 32
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server 6 to 8
network.http.pipelining.ssl false to true
network.http.proxy.pipelining false to true

4) Disable Delay Time While Installing Firefox Add-on

security.dialog_enable_delay = 0

(Zero is number of seconds Firefox should wait while installing Add-on)

5) Increase History Undo Close Tab Limit ( Recently Closed Tabs )

browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo=15

By default you can undo 10 recently closed tabs inorder to increase your history closed tabs. Change number 13 to as per your choice.

6) Auto Complete URL while You type at address Bar

browser.urlbar.autoFill=True

Thats all i'm posting (the only ones i feel are really useful), many of these can be used in previous versions, but not all. Also another interesting addon for firefox i would like to show you is Ubiquity, heres a site with a video of it in action, i love this app.

no, this is the firefox configuration file so they are 2 totally separate entities.
