This nifty configuration walk through will show you how to make Firefox load web pages quicker than usual. <br /><br />1. Open Firefox and type "about:config" in the URL bar<br />2. Press enter when the "Void your Firefox warranty" comes up<br />3. Below the URL bar you will notice that there is now another search bar, type "Network" into it<br />4. Scroll down until you see "Network.HTTP.Pipelining" you will notice that it is set to fake. Right-Click to toggle it and change it to TRUE<br />5. Below "Network.HTTP.Pipelining" you will see a similar sounding name just with a "Max Requests" at the end of it. Right -Click to toggle, and set it to 8. <br />6. Open up a new tab in Firefox (Control button+ T) and type in any website in the URL bar. Notice a quicker loading time and quicker refresh rate.<br /><br />And that is how you speed up Firefox folks! If there are questions about this, shoot me a message or email.<br />

What do xpcom mean when trying to get on to internet site as it keeps comeing up cannot load xpcom

Certain Firefox problems can be solved by performing a Clean reinstall. (XPCOM problems require a reinstall) This means you remove Firefox program files (not any bookmarks etc. in your profile folder) and then reinstall Firefox. Please follow these steps:
Note: You might want to print these steps or view them in another browser.
  1. Download the latest Desktop version of Firefox from and save the setup file to your computer.
  2. After the download finishes, close all Firefox windows (click Exit from the Firefox or File menu).
  3. Delete the Firefox installation folder, which is located in one of these locations, by default:
    • Windows:
      • C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
      • C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox
    • Mac: Delete Firefox from the Applications folder.
    • Linux: If you installed Firefox with the distro-based package manager, you should use the same way to uninstall it - see Install Firefox on Linux. If you downloaded and installed the binary package from the Firefox download page, simply remove the folder firefox in your home directory.
  4. Now, go ahead and reinstall Firefox:
    1. Double-click the downloaded installation file and go through the steps of the installation wizard.
    2. Once the wizard is finished, choose to directly open Firefox after clicking the Finish button.

Cannot load XPCOM for Mozilla firefox

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.
To Reset Firefox do the following:
  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.

When I receive a email with a link, I double click on the link but I can't open it up. If i highlight it and click on search, it will usually open but not all of the time. It has only been doing this for...

Internet Explorer is very slow when trying to browse the internet. It means, that when you try to open a link, a url and or a website the loading of the web page is very slow.

I do suggest that you change your Internet browser to Mozilla Firefox. This internet browser is comparatively faster than Internet Explorer.

Download this from this link

Click this link. When a small window appear click the Save File button to daownload it. After downloading, double click this file to run and install in your computer. Make it as your default browser.

Now when you click any links from your, the links will load faster in mozilla firefox.
