Re: Firefox running slow in Ubuntu 10.10

Hi I have got a fix for you make sure you follow the steps that I am giving you down here and it will definitely fix the slow browser problem completely.

- First of all open up th e browser and then type about:config in the address bar press enter.

- Now make the necessary changes in the following settings.

a) In the network.dns.disableIPv6 change the value to true.
b) For network.http.pipelining change the value to true.
c) For network.http.pipelining.maxrequests set the vales as 8 0r 10.
d) In network.http.proxy.pipelining change the value to true.

So this is how it is done do work on it and let me know if it works or not.
