Boost up your Firefox

By default Firefox download an item one-by-one when you surf a webpage. However deep inside it there’s a way on how to force it to download simultaneously.

  1. Start your Firefox
  2. On the address type: about:config
  3. On the filter type: network.http
  4. Double click on network.http.pipelining so that the value becomes true
  5. Double click on network.http.pipelining.maxrequests and change to higher value e.g. 30
  6. Double click on network.http.proxy.pipelining so that the value becomes true

Restart your Firefox and you should feel some improvement.

Vista Problem, Control Panel and Personalize

One day I started my Microsoft Vista machine and find out that my Aero effect gone. Then I tried to enable it on my Personalize. What happen is that I can’t open it up. Then I tried to start my Control Panel, and the same problem occur: it won’t open up. After several research on Microsoft Knowledgebase I finally found out that there is a “bug” which not yet been fixed.

In order to resolve this problem, you need to get a hotfix from Microsoft as it is not available for download. You can refer to article 936686 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/936686/en-us)

  • Once you downloaded it, go to Start > Run > type “services.msc”
  • When AUC popup, just click Continue
  • Find SL UI Notification and stop it.
  • Find Software Licensing and stop it (Regardless if there is a message about ReadyBoost)
  • Then start back Software Liensing, then SL UI Notification.
  • Install the downloaded hotfix (Windows6.0-KB929637-v2-x86)
  • Restart your machine

It will resolved the problem. However there is also chances that this won’t fixed the problem, then that case continue reading.
