Firefox tuning and tweaks

A short yet simple guide to get maximum performance in Firefox.
The tweaks:
network.http.max-connections: 48

network.http.max-connections-per-server: 24

network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy: 12

network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server: 6

network.http.pipelining: true

network.http.pipelining.maxrequests: 8

network.http.proxy.pipelining: true


The mozillazine firefox tuning guide is pretty detailed. Another guide is at tweakfactor. An extension I've not tried myself, helps tweak Firefox settings

I like the concept - I generally find Firefox slow and it takes up at least 60 MB of RAM, with millions of page faults. Still use it though - primarily, I think, because of the drag-and-drop opening of tabs.

For some reason I am unable to view quicktime videos properly within Firefox and have to switch to IE for any video-rich page. Any tips?
