Apologies that this may not be the right forum, but many Mac/Firefox users may not see this otherwise. Wanted to share. Ever since getting my new latest generation Mini, I've had a devil of a time with painfully slow loading pages and long waits. Finally fixed all that with some tips and tweaks that everyone might want to consider. All this did wonders for me: 1) Switch default DNS settings to OpenDNS: https://www.opendns.com/start/ 2) Turn off IPv6 in System Preferences: Network, Advanced, TCPIP. Configure: IPv6=off 3) Disable IPv6 in Firefox: about:config network.dns.disableIPv6=true 4) Tune Firefox: http://www.wikihow.com/Make-Firefox-Load-Pages-Faster 1. Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries: network.http.pipelining, network.http.proxy.pipelining, network.http.pipelining.maxrequests 2. Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading. 3. Alter the entries as follows: 4. Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true" by double-clicking it. 5. Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to 8 by double-clicking it. This means it will make 8 requests at once. There is no point setting it higher then 8 as it is capped at 8 max. [The default value for this setting is 4] 6. Lastly right-click anywhere and select 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. 7. If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!
