Browser. Optimize Firefox

I have some problem with my Firefox. It always takes my memory at least 100M. Sometimes, it can raise to 300M and suddenly crashes. Gru…  My laptop’s memory is only 700M.

I have check several tips from the Internet. Below is my solution:

Go to firefox url bar. Enter the url:

about:config then click go

Search for these properties below and change its value. If you cannot find the property, just create it

Tip:  if the value is number => Right click on the panel, select New -> Integer, if the value is true/false => Right click on the panel, select New -> Boolean, if the value is a string => Right click on the panel, select New -> String 

config.trim_on_minimize = true
browser.sessionhistory.max_entries = 0
browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers = 0
network.http.pipelining = true
network.http.proxy.pipelining =true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests = 30
nglayout.initialpaint.delay = 0
browser.tabs.showSingleWindowModePrefs = true

Check the result after open 7 tabs


It just takes 58M. Attractive result! Tags: ,
