Speed Up Firefox Loading Page Time and Startup Time
" are two great tips for Firefox, the free, rock-solid, secure
browser from the Mozilla Foundation. Apply them both to enjoy the time you
save loading Firefox and loading web pages. They really make Firefox

but calling FF rock-solid is large overstatement in my humble opinion :)

+ the download manager sucks monkeyballs compared to Download Accelerator Plus

nag, nag, nag ;)

Those speedtweaks appear to work quite well, especially the prefetch thingy.

Good find !

Same here, FF isn't as stable as they want to make us believe.
FF keeps crashing using test 2 (on unload) :

But, that isn't what you can understand under 'normal use'.

I got this from telenet a while ago:

open notepad and copy the following into it:.

user_pref("content.interrupt.parsing", true);
user_pref("content.max.tokenizing.time", 2250000);
user_pref("content.maxtextrun", 8191);
user_pref("content.notify.backoffcount", 5);
user_pref("content.notify.interval", 750000);
user_pref("content.notify.ontimer", true);
user_pref("content.switch.threshold", 750000);
user_pref("nglayout.initialpaint.delay", 0);
user_pref("network.http.max-connections", 48);
user_pref("network.http.max-connections-per-server", 16);
user_pref("network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy", 16);
user_pref("network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server", 8);
user_pref("network.http.pipelining", true);
user_pref("network.http.pipelining.maxrequests", 100);
user_pref("network.http.proxy.pipelining", true);

save as user.txt on the following location:
C:\documents and settings\username\application data\mozilla\firefox\profiles\default

username is the name of the target account, not the word username ;)

rename user.txt to user.js

settings will take effect the next time you start firefox.

I never had problems with firefox and I've been using it for months now.

the only thing I get is that some pages don't display correctly but that's because of the poor coding rather then firefox.

here IE works flawlessly without any pop-up stopper. Just SP2 and all the updates.

I was using Firefox, but recently found quite a few pages that had issues under Firefox, that aren't there with IE. So I went back to IE like a week ago, but:
I'm getting errors like these every few pages in IE. No problems in any other program.
Anyone any ideas or solutions?
