I got myself into a bit of a pickle here! I recently downloaded this extension for Firefox:
http://www.bitstorm....tensions/tweak/ and also did these changes to my FF Config:

set network.http.pipeling to true
set network.http.proxy.pipelining to true
set network.http.pipeling.maxrequests to at least 30
AND add an integer called nglayout.initialpaint.delay and set it to 0

And now since few hours ago my internet has slowed down to crazy speeds! What makes this worse I use broadband! To be honest it took me exactly to 1:57 mins to view my profile on GTG! This only applies to my computer! (Have three cmputers networked)! Any help is considered far more helpful than help!

Don't forget to empty your cache in Frefox occasionally. I've noticed whenever my 'puter seems slow with FF, it helps. Tools>Options>Privacy> Cache> Clear> OK :tazz:
