Here is a little tip to speed up the Firefox browser.
First read these FAQ's and decide if you want to try this. Below you will find instructions to "Pipeline" your browser.

With Firefox open type " about:config " (without quotes) in the address bar. Press Enter.
You will see a new toolbar with the word "Filter:" just below your tabs.

Type the word: pipe

You should now have four entries:

network.http.pipelining - false
network.http.pipelining.firstrequest - false
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests- 4
network.http.proxy.pipelining - false

Double click on each of the first two and change to: true
Double click on the third one and change maxrequests to: 16
Double click the last entry and set to: true

Close Firefox browser to save these settings. Re-open Firefox and enjoy pipelining.

What entry was missing? Firstrequest?

My "first request" (that wouldn't be Xara 3d, would it?) was gone, too. Tommorow's another day, and I'll probably jump back into about:config to do it anyway. :thumbsup:

After digging around I have found that the Windows version does NOT have the "FirstRequest" setting in about:config. So just set the other three and enjoy!

Xara-3D is a great program for creating 3-dimensional text and web banners. ( just like cgm3's signature)
