This is about:


http://blogs.lotterypost.com/todd/2007/10/tips-to-make-firefox-download-pages-quicker.htm



The info appears to be on (in) the:

prefs.js

File at:

C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\jkmhwg1q.default



On Win98SE, but should work with your own operating system, whatever it might be, it would save you a lot of trouble.

This is the file's text on my Pc, it has a few more changes than those that Todd talks about, good changes:



Also go to:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1553 

http://bookmarkdd.mozdev.org/

And download that extension for FireFox, you will like it very much.

I have FireFox version 2.0.0.6 and it works just fine with that extension.

It got rid of all the duplicate book marks that I had.

 

Select All, then copy and then paste on the fille after you have deleted whatever is on it first.
Before doing it, save the original prefs.js file to your desktop or to the document folder or rename it, just in case that you make a mistake and need to undo your mistake, if so just replace the bad file with the original one.
Even if you do the changes as Todd says, first backup or save the original prefs.js file to your desktop or to somewhere else.
Much better just to use my own copy that I am putting here:

Don't copy my own:
prefs.js
As it would ruin your own settings, my saying to copy and paste it was and it a mistake.
Just look at it, but that is all.

The info in my blog was not obtained from the source you mentioned. It is my own numbers that I played with until I was happy. I don't agree with what you're saying in your entry here. This is NOT the best or easiest way to configure Firefox. Why not just create your own stand-alone topic, instead of trying to tell people not to use the advice I've provided? Is that really necessary?

yeah, if you copy and paste it, you would ruin your system.
