    Hi there. please be patient with me - I'm a novice. Thanks!!
    Sorry about previous post. Hit the wrong button.

    I have recently switched from IE to Mozilla Firefox.

    Have been searching all over for ways to improve my connection speed. I run windows XP but on a dial up. Often the Activity connection page stalls so there is no bytes being sent or received. The icon for connection (2 tiny computers!!) more often than not, remains black which tells me that there is not alot going on.

    (Note: I am totally useless with this type of thing!!)
    I read your post but could not figure out how to set preferences such as: content.notify.ontimer /* default = true */

    Also, in the post from Alien13 he said to: Locate the line browser.tabs.showSingleWindowModePrefs . I have been able to do the rest using about:config, but cannot locate this one in the file. Within the Windows Task Manager under the Networking Tab, the Network Utilization % goes from 0 to 95% and back down and up etc. My current Kbps is at 46.

    Heres hoping that you can help me.
    Many thanks

    That is great but when you say it make 30 requests at once does that mean when you buy something online that it will buy it 30 times

    100 makes it go slower for some stupid reason so 50 is the best spot!
