Firefox Proxies and increasing speed.

Have you ever been banned from a certain site? Your IP Address is blocked disabling you from surfing that particular place. Here is a simple way to change your IP address, allowing you to surf anonymously and be untraceable in most cases.
---------------------------------------------------------------
First you will need Mozilla Firefox:
Search Google for an anonymous proxy list (Preferably from a different country)
Go to Option -> Advanced -> Network and press Settings
Enable "Manual Proxy Configuration"
Under HTTP Proxy: Type your proxy you found in google
Under Port: Type the last 4 digits that are in your proxy that you found in google.

EG: HTTP Proxy: 84.120.53.113 PORT: 8000
(Yes you can use this one, its from Japan lol)


Enable "Use this proxy server for all protocols"
Press "Ok"
You can now visit websites you were recently blocked from
---------------------------------------------------------------

Make Firefox internet quicker:
In the address bar type: About:config
Find "network.http.pipelining" and set it from false, to TRUE.
Find "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" and change the integer to "400"
Should be faster now, cannot be bothered explaining how it does it.

  15. Also, right click >Create New >Integer named "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" Set this integer to 50. Play with this value and the one mentioned in the article to find the best settings for your specific connection. Happy browsing ;)
