Sweet Firefox tweak program
 
Try a heavy website first, then install FireTune and see how fast it loads. Seems to be working on my PC, with no side effects...

The program will prompt you to back up your config. file. Do that. It's also a good idea to back up your bookmarks every so often, so do that too.

Alright, dl'd it, and I am noticing a bit more speed... Seems okay so far, once I try different pages, the outcome might be different though.

Seems pretty nice, thanks man. Just out of curiosity, b ut does anyone know how a program would optimize speed?

Normally when you connect to a webpage it is through one connection, tweeks like this connects to the webpage multiple times thus it downloads the page quicker. But usually single downloads from a page aren't sped up at all. If this is what this program does it usually frowned upon cause it can cause "too many connections" errors and it's rude to the server. That and some webpages won't load up correctly cause they can refuse multiple connections from the same computer.

Looks good for people who don't feel like doing it through about:config.

well, if u r talkin about tweaking firefox u might need this:

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
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"

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.

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 recieves.

If you're using a brodband connection you'll load pages 2-3 times faster now.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
about:config (hit enter)

You will see a whole load of options (reminds me of Regedit) Change the following values as stated:

network.http.max-connections = 64
network.http.max-connections-per-server= 20
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server= 10
network.http.pipelining = true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests = 20 or 30 (choose one)
nglayout.initialpaint.delay = 0
network.http.request.max-start-delay = 0
If nglayout.initialpaint.delay doesnt exist, Right click, new integer.

Optional:
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy = 10
network.http.proxy.pipelining = true
network.http.proxy.version = 1.0

Close mozilla and start it again.
Now Mozilla Burns sites like wild.

WARNING: These settings make you download sites considerably faster, BUT put a great overload on the sites you go to. This really means nothing other then the fact that anyone else browsing will just go slower and you will absorb their speed.

Next tip:

Disable IPv6 in Firefox for a nice page speed increase!!........ because most if not all of the web is still using IPv4...........and it works in Windows version of Firefox too. yes.gif

Open Firefox.........type about:config (enter)

look for :Network.dns.disableIPv6

Double click to to toggle it to 'true' and then restart Firefox.

You should notice a speed increase.........page to page.

Now make Firefox really work for you...

One of the sweetest thing about Firefox is the ability to use extentions. At the time of this writing, there are 226 extentions that we can use to make it better.. I will only touch on a few of them that I use. (Alphabetically Sorted)

Adblock: Remove inline ads.

Bookmarks Synchronizer: Save your bookmarks to an XML file, and sync with an FTP server. Keep your work/home bookmarks current!

Digger: Navigate to parent directories, switch to ftp equivalent of site, climb subdomains, etc.. Very helpful in "scouting" a site.

Download Sort: Automatically send downloads to specific folders based on file's extention.
Gmail Notifier: Lets you know if you have new gmail

Google Pagerank Status: Lets you see the Google PageRank of the page you are visiting.

refspoof: "Spoof" your referer.

Spiderzilla: Download an entire site to a local directory.

Super DragAndGo: Drag a link to blank space on a webpage, and it will open it in a new tab.

SpoofStick: gives real addy when you land on fake sites.

SwitchProxy: Manage and switch between multiple proxies. Make sure to read my article on finding and useing proxies.

User Agent Switcher: Switch the user agent of your browser.

x: Gives a Toolbar "paranoia" button, click it and it can clear history, form info, saved passwords, download history, cookies, & cache.

Sick of Google Ads on everyone's page? Well lets tell firefox that we don't want to see them anymore. This hack will remove 95% of all Ads, including google Ads. (Yes, even from Gmail. Warning, Removing these ads may violate the TOS of Gmail)

This hack uses the magic of CSS and a Firefox configuration file named UserContent.css. We are going to edit this file, I suggest you download the plugin ChomEdit to make your job easier. (Go install it now & come back after restart)

Ok, now that you have ChromEdit installed, open Firefox and click on Tools / Edit User files. A new window will appear that has five tabs across the top. Click on the tab that is labeled userContent.css. Next click on the link below and copy all the text. Then paste it into the userContent.css file, then click the Save button.
Code

Now restart your browser.. Tada, Google ads are gone!
