Subject description: This helps dialup and broadband download speed. Mine almost doubled.
 

I was stumbling through the net today and I ran across some tips on speeding up Firefox that I never tried. I applied these tips to Seamonkey in puppy 2.13 and my download speed and page loading improved at least 50 percent on my 56K modem.

I understand they have a lot to do with helping the DNS server figure out what to do faster.

If you dont like waiting for your page to load try these tips by adding these lines by right clicking or change the value of the existing lines in 'about:config' to the following:

browser.cache.memory.capacity user set integer 65536

content.interrupt.parsing user set boolean true

content.max.tokenizing.time user set integer 2250000

content.notify.backoffcount user set integer 5

content.notify.interval user set integer 750000

content.notify.ontimer user set boolean true

content.switch.threshold user set integer 750000

network.dns.disableIPv6 user set boolean true

network.http.pipelining user set boolean true

network.http.pipelining.maxrequests user set integer 8 (MAX SEEN IS 8.)

network.http.proxy.pipelining user set boolean true

network.prefetch-next user set boolean false (FOR DIAL-UP)

nglayout.initialpaint.delay user set integer 0

plugin.expose_full_path user set boolean true

ui.submenuDelay user set integer 0

I found this in a tech article dated today at http://www.helpero.com/ I think.

I just tried the other tip - can't find the message.
Firefox starts noticable faster on my Celeron 2200 Very Happy

Add this line to one of the startscripts, like
/usr/local/bin/mozstart.sh

add after the line
#!/bin/sh

Code:
export MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO=1


Pango is a vector based render-engine from Gtk that slows down things.
It might be required to display SVG grafics, did not try yet, if disabling it has an effect on the ability to display SVG.
But SVG is used seldom, so the gain in speed is really worth to try it.

Thanks for this great tip, Mark

My Seamonkey loads much faster with that hack. SVG opens fine in Inkscape 0.45 when I go to a test page in Seamonkey. I don't use Firefox now. That hack seems to work best when loading local or cashed pages.

EDIT: SVG. Enabled is set to true in my about:config so disabling Pango may be disabling the in browser SVG reader. Oh well it works in Inkscape and like you say it's faster.

I hear Firefox has come out with 2.0.0.2rc and 1.5.10rc that is supposed to fix some of these bugs in 2.0.0.1 and 1.5.09 that drew me away. They also have 1.5.10rc out because there are alot of people that are still using 1.5 because of extension compatability not to mention it's higher quality IMO. They are supposed to load faster. This should leak down to Seamonkey soon as well.

ah yes, mixed up things.
Because both are often used in combination (libpangocairo.so)
Cairo= vector engine.
Pango=font system.

But the fonts still look good when it is disabled Smile

If you have Puppy running on multiple machines, you may not want to use the
about:config approach to enter the browser settings on each machine. ( I didn't Laughing ).

I searched and found that a user preset file can be created. If present, it will be read
when Seamonkey/Firefox/et al start up.

In Puppy, the folder that holds the file is:
Seamonkey /root/.mozilla/default/r3y1skkw.slt/user.js
Firefox .... ... /usr/local/firefox/defaults/profile/user.js

Here are the above settings in the format for user.js
Cut, paste, save and put on each of your puppy machines.

Restart your browser. You should be able to see the settings using about:config.

---------------------
Mark, I'm using Pup 2.10 right now and it has
"mozstart" not "mozstart.sh" ie. /usr/local/bin/mozstart

So I put "export MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO=1" in there.

# User pre-sets for Seamonkey/Firefox/etc

# Rod / GatorDog FEB 2007

# According to Computerworld:
