    hey Geestar good job with the info i've been using firefox for about 4 years now i've always loved it,and for awhile it sped things up but a month later after the tweaks i've been noticing my browser is slowing down like my DragRacer deployed a chute behind it what's the deal
    I have a Fast Computer and Cable High Speed Internet,I recently Reinstalled Windows due to pesky Viruses I haven't had one in years so I can't be viruses again,any Ideas?

    CPU: 2.66GHZ Intel Pentium 4 class D
    768Mbs of Ram

    Schwaber - that sig animation is 673KB, way over the allowed 50KB. Remove it ASAP

    What will the settings suggested by geestar20 do on a dial-up connection. Yeah I know it sucks but it is all that is available. Thanks.
    Probably should have put more thought into original question, sorry. I am also using a proxy server, an accelerator service provided through my ISP. Will changing those settings affect this at all and will any of these changes be included in the official release of Firefox 3?

    every little bit helps
    it won't be by much but it will definitely be a noticeable improvement...
    good luck,

    Although I went back and edited my original post to provide more detail, I went ahead and made the changes while waiting for a response.(Can always return to default) Anyway I think that I can tell a difference when using dial-up as well, not a "holy crap did you see that" difference but a fairly noticeable one nonetheless. Would still like to know if anyone sees a problem with these changes and using the proxy server as stated in my previous reply. Thanks for the great info.

    This seems to speed up loading of all sites I use EXCEPT BBC sites, which are either much slower or give me a 'Page Load Error'.

    does anyone else have this problem???
