Length of time to timeout in Firefox

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Gualtier Malde, Mar 13, 2006.

  1. I am at the end of a cable line and therefore my service is suboptimal.
    Loading a page can take longer for me than usual with certain sites.
    It seems to me that Firefox gives up too soon. I get a timeout message
    in something like 30 seconds.

    Can I change that?

    You can.
    Type "about:config" in the FF-address-bar.
    Filter on "timeout".
    There you'll find values for "network.http.keep-alive.timeout",
    2network.proxy.failover_timeout", and so on.
    Doubleclick a value and set it higher.
