ok, I didn't know where to put this but it will help you firefox users out alot and make webpages load ALOT faster, I speak from experience (I found this on another forum.)

For you Firefox Fans, I came across this tweak from forevergeek.com to make webpages load faster in the FireFox browser. Give it try, it actually does speed things up a bit.

After you get past the beginner stage with Firefox, try this "power-user" trick to make it download pages faster by allowing multiple connections so it can download more than one file at a time. It's only useful for broadband users, so if you're still on dial-up you can just skip this one for now.

Here's something for broadband people that will really speed Firefox up:

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 receives.

If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!

Now is there any tweaks like this for IE ;)

I use firefox for certain uses only as Firefox doesnt support the advanced Editor.

You mean the Advanced Editor doesn't support third party browsers, right? IE already does this, but the settings arent quite as agressive as that article recommends.

With my use of opera and Firefox both, I'd get a more simple editor, no matter what the settings. IE's the only one where i get the full use of the advanced editor.
