Tips to speed up Firefox

Who wants to slooowly surf the web.
Firefox 3.x works great out of the box, but here are some configuration changes to speed it up (browsing and startup).

1) Turn on TraceMonkey (Javascript complier).

Type about:config in the Address bar and press Enter.
In the filter textbox, type
javascript.options.jit.chrome
Double-click on the value javascript.options.jit.chrome to turn it on (true)

Here is the link where I found this information.

2) Increase you piplines (increases the number of concurrent requests to the server)

Type about:config in the Address bar and press Enter.
Type network.http.pipelining and network.http.proxy.pipelining in the Filter field.
Under the Filter field the preferences should appear . Click on them and set them to
true
Type network.http.pipelining.maxrequests in the Filter field. Under the Filter field the preference should appear. Click on it and set the value to 10 or to whatever value to wish (anyway no more than 30).
