If you have been using Firefox for very long you probably already know this and this was posted at one time on the old board.

Here it is again for those that don't know.

If you have a broadband connection (Cable/DSL, etc.) and you want your Firefox to be faster on this site, any most other sites, then:


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" if you use a proxy.
Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to 8. This means it will make 8 requests at once. Changing it higher has no effect.


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 recieves.

4) Shut Firefox down and restart it. Reload SaintsReport.



This DOES work, try it for yourself and see.
