    I found this in another thread, FYI. Haven't checked it out myself but
    it sounds good.

    Forevergeek.com has a useful guide on speeding up firefox for broadband
    users. Basically after getting to the hidden config settings you set the
    browser to request more data that it usually does.

    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!

    ....

    This "make mozilla/firefox faster!" info appears about every month.

    You should read this before you make the changes suggested by
    ForeverGeek.com:

    --
    OK, that's good info as well. So, if I decide I'd like to undo these changes, such as to get rid of ''nglayout.initialpaint.delay'', what's the method?

    Thanx, Herb
