Firefox is a rock solid browser, but sometimes can look very slow compared to Chrome or similar browsers…

You can fix this, going in config mode and changing some values:

  1. in the address URL bar, type about:config
  2. acknowledge the warning (you are going to change advanced settings)
  3. into the search box on top, search “pipelining
  4. change the value of network.http.pipelining to true (double clicking on false)
  5. change the value of network.http.proxy.pipelining to true (double clicking on false)
  6. change the value of network.http.pipelining.ssl to true (double clicking on false)
  7. change the value of network.http.pipelining.maxrequests from 32 to 8 (double clicking on 32)
  8. into the search box on top, search “ipv6
  9. change the value of network.dns.disableIPv6 to true (double clicking on false)

Close and restart the browser. Enjoy. 🙂
