Speed up and tweak Firefox with these tips

Speed up the Firefox browser

I had problems with Firefox being slow on Facebook, but this tip has helped. Go to about:config and search for this value.

dom.storage.enabled

Change this to false and this will speed up Firefox.

This is another value that will help speed the browser up.

browser.cache.use_new_backend

The new cache will be enabled and you should get a speed boost and a smoother browsing experience.

Disable Firefox telemetry

Firefox also has telemetry built-in. This tries to connect to the https://incoming.telemetry.mozilla.org URL to report usage of the browser. This can be blocked with the about:config settings below.

Firefox telemetry settings.
Firefox telemetry settings.

Adding the URL to the blocked site settings in your router if possible would also block this telemetry.

To provide a small speed boost for web browsing, change these two values in about:config to true.

network.http.pipelining
network.http.pipelining.aggressive

This will give a small boost to Firefox when browsing the Internet.
