Reduce the amount of RAM Firefox uses for its cache feature

1. Type about:config (no quotes) in the adress bar in the browser.
2. Find "browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewer
3. Set its value to(Zero)

That's a great way of slowing firefox down not speeding up

SOURCE: "Lowering this value causes less memory to be used but also causes more previously visited pages to have to be re-parsed (thus increasing their load time). Raising it has the opposite effect. One page will on average take 4MB of memory. "

Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to some number like 10.
The maximum value for this field is 8 not 10.

SOURCE: "Any integer from 1 to 8 inclusive determines the maximum number of requests to pipeline at once. A value of 1 disables pipelining. (Default: 4) "

http://kb.mozillazine.org...

Lastly, right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it :nglayout.initialpaint.delay and set its value to 0

Actually this is proven to slow down your browsing speed. Yes it allows firefox to immediately display rendered information, however it slows down your browsing speed in the long run.

SOURCE: "Lower values will make a page initially display more quickly, but will make the page take longer to finish rendering. Higher values will have the opposite effect. "
