My question concerns two settings which are Firefox native, but reading comments over the Web leads as often to contradictory assertions and advised values.
What are the pros and cons of increasing/decreasing these two Firefox native values, network.http.pipelining.maxrequests and network.http.pipelining.max-optimistic-requests ? They both default to 4.
Pale Moon Commander lists these values and Pale Moon Commander User's Guide comments them as follow :
Pale Moon Commander / Network / Pipelining
Default=4 - In about:config : network.http.pipelining.maxrequestsMaximum number of requests in the pipeline: The maximum number of
outstanding requests for page elements for each pipelined connection (request
sent without waiting for receipt of the element).
Default=4 - In about:config : network.http.pipelining.max-optimistic-requestsMaximum optimistic pipelining requests: The maximum number of requests
that are put in the pipeline which could have been sent over a separate
Since the time I have been wondering about the effectiveness of modifying these values (goes back to Firefox) I thought I'd share this puzzling here.
Thanks for your comments/advice
