Firefox Pipeline – Part 2 (The “Issues” Post)

Comments (7)

A few days ago I posted about turning on the Pipelining feature in Firefox.  In many cases, I’ve seen a dramatic performance improvement.  However, now that I’ve been using it for a few days, I’ve run into some sites that it simply breaks, including the Wall Street Journal site. 

One of my comments suggested that I try the Tweak Network Settings Firefox Extension.  It’s great – it exposes the same options but also gives you and easy off button (“Default”) and on button (“Power”) through a menu option in the Tools menu within Firefox.  Interestingly, when I used the “Power” settings (which are slightly different then the ones I had listed in the previous post), the Wall Street Journal site automagically works again.
