Firefox browser from Mozilla is one of the most popular web browsers available. It has a big user base and market share. Mozilla developers are constantly making important changes to make Mozilla faster. Apart from this, Mozilla is doing some strategic changes as well. On the financial front, it has been testing different default search engines in different regions. In this article, we’ll be telling you about some hidden ways to speed up your Mozilla web browser.
Method 1: Using pipeline to make Mozilla Firefox faster
Type “about:config” into the address bar and press Enter. Now click “I’ll be careful, I promise!“
Now set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to true by double-clicking it.
Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to 8 (it’s 32 by default) by double-clicking it. This means it will make 8 requests at once.
