How To Improve the Speed of Firefox 3 in Linux

We all know Firefox is a memory hog. To speed things up, do the following:

Open Firefox and type about:config in the address bar.
Click the “I’ll be careful, I promise“ button
Use the search bar above to look for network.http.pipelining and double click on it to set it’s value to True.
Create a new boolean value named network.http.pipelining.firstrequest and set it to True.
Find network.http.pipelining.maxrequests and change its value to 8.
Look for network.http.proxy.pipelining and set it to True.
Create two new integers named nglayout.initialpaint.delay and content.notify.interval, set them to 0.
Restart your browser.
