To speed up the FireFox web browser with an extra boost, settings can be changed in the configuration settings. Several data channels may be opened at once to increase the throughput on http transactions. For most people browsing the web this modification might not give too much of an increase, unless there are several data transfers going on at the same time.

In the address bar, type about:config to get to the internal options.

Address Bar >; about:config

To find a setting, copy it from below and enter it into the url bar. Change the setting to the values listed and firefox will be enabled to run more quickly than default with open pipelines.
