    99First, open Firefox's advanced settings menu by running ''about:config'' from the address bar. Upon entering this address, you will see a long list of internal settings. Modify the following ones and set them to the suggested values shown here for maximum performance:
    1010
    11 {{{ network.http.keep-alive.timeout:600 (300ms default is OK usually, but 600 is better.)
    12 network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy:16 (Default is 4)
     11{{{ network.http.keep-alive.timeout:600 (300ms default is OK usually, but 600 is consistently better)
     12network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy:16 (Default is 8?)
    1313network.http.pipelining:true (Default- false. Some old HTTP/1.0 servers can't handle it.)
    14 network.http.pipelining.firstrequest:true (Default- false. You may have to create this boolean.)
     14network.http.pipelining.firstrequest:true (Default- false.)
    1515network.http.pipelining.maxrequests:8 (No default)
    1616network.http.proxy.keep-alive:true (Default- true, but double check)
    17 network.http.proxy.pipelining:true (Default- false) }}}
     17network.http.proxy.pipelining:true (Default- false)
     18network.http.proxy.keep-alive:true (Default- true, but double check) }}}

    1920Afterwards, just restart the browser and experience the difference! For some automated additional performance hacks, check out [http://www.totalidea.com/freestuff4.htm FireTune]. Currently, Fire``Tune is only for Win32, but you can do the same tweaks manually with the help of [http://www.tweakfactor.com/articles/tweaks/firefoxtweak/4.html this page]. Also, this wiki site's documentation on [http://wiki.noreply.org/noreply/TheOnionRouter/SquidProxy Squid+Tor] is of some use for performance and anonymity reasons.
