Increase mozzila browsing performance

How To Remove Mozilla Hanging Problem

"From Last some days I am facing the hanging and show working problem while using Mozilla Firefox and finally I got the final solution to resolve this problem and I want to share this to my all friends"
                  To improve performance when navigating (studies show that 39% of all page navigations are renavigations to pages visited less than 10 pages ago, usually using the back button), Firefox implements a Back-Forward cache that retains the rendered document for the last five session history entries for each tab. This is a lot of data. If you have a lot of tabs, Firefox’s RAM memory usage can climb dramatically. It’s a trade-off. What you get out of it is faster performance as you navigate the web.

Reduce the amount of RAM Firefox uses for it’s cache feature:

Lets know how to do it:
  • Type “about:config” (no quotes) in the address bar in the browser.
  • Find “browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewer
  • Set it’s value to “0“(Zero)

Increase the Speed in Which Firefox loads pages:


1. Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit Enter.
(Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enablepipeliningit 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 10.
This means it will make 10 requests at once.
3. Lastly, right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0“;.(Zero)
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 faster now.
Optionally (for even faster web browsing) here are some more options for your about:config (you might have to create some of these entries by Right Click –> New– > Interger or String
network.dns.disableIPv6: set “false” 
content.notify.backoffcount”: set “5“; (Five)
plugin.expose_full_path”: set “true”.
ui.submenuDelay”: set “0; (zero)

Reduce RAM usage to 10mb when Firefox is minimized:


(This little hack will drop Firefox’s RAM usage down to 10 Mb when minimized)
1. Open Firefox and go to the Address Bar. Type in about:config and then press Enter.
2. Right Click in the page and select New -> Boolean.
3. In the box that pops up enter “config.trim_on_minimize”. Press Enter.
4. Now select True and then press Enter.
5. Restart Firefox.

These simple tweaks will make your web browsing with Mozilla Firefox 2-3 times faster and easier.
