Some add-ons or settings might change the information in the configuration database , that cause a problem in "downloading files" or "saving pages" . i.e. whenever you click on a download link and choose the option "save file as" , nothing happens .

The solution to this problem lies in resetting the values in the configuration page . ( That's what is cool about firefox being an open source program )

Open a new tab . Type about:config in the address bar .

Search for browser.download .

A list of values will appear . Right click and reset the values for all attributes .

Download in firefox will work fine now.

.....There is another group of people who loudly call themselves hackers, but aren't. These are people (mainly adolescent males) who get a kick out of breaking into computers and phreaking the phone system. Real hackers call these people ‘crackers’ and want nothing to do with them. Real hackers mostly think crackers are lazy, irresponsible, and not very bright, and object that being able to break security doesn't make you a hacker any more than being able to hotwire cars makes you an automotive engineer. Unfortunately, many journalists and writers have been fooled into using the word ‘hacker’ to describe crackers; this irritates real hackers no end.
The basic difference is this: hackers build things, crackers break them.......

Mozilla Firefox is the most widely used web browser at present . Its pretty powerful and its "Master Password" feature makes it the best browser in scene .

Firefox is already pretty fast but do you know that you can tweak it and improve the speed even more?

That's the beauty of this program being open source.
Here's what you do:
In the URL bar, type “about:config” and press enter. This will bring up the configuration “menu” where you can change the parameters of Firefox.

Double Click on the following settings and put in the numbers below - for the true / false booleans - they’ll change when you double click.


browser.tabs.showSingleWindowModePrefs – true
network.http.max-connections – 48
network.http.max-connections-per-server – 16
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy – 8
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server – 4
network.http.pipelining – true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests – 100
network.http.proxy.pipelining – true
network.http.request.timeout – 300

One more thing… Right-click somewhere on that screen and add a NEW -> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0”. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.

Now you should notice you’re loading pages MUCH faster now!
