is this safe or no ? please tell me by raybyray7@yahoo.com - Speed up mozilla firefox Just do this.... Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit enter. Scroll down and look for the following entries: network.http.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests network.http.proxy.pipelining 2. Alter the entries as follows: Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true" Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true" Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30. 3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set its value to "0". This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.

I have had to move my site to a new web host. As I update DNS pointers, I want to know when they have resolved.

It seems that the best way to do this is to look at the IP address that the site resolves to. Since the pages are the same on the old and the new site, looking at them doesn't do it.

Is there an easy way in Firefox to get the IP address of the current page?

Our application has been working for several years, but recently we got a lot of complaints from users that can no longer log in. Our app is set up to link a user to a workstation using a cookie (s)he receives on the first connection. Apparently, this cookie is nicely transferred to the workstation, and the user is requested to login again. At that point the request does not contain the cookie and the login is refused. Yet when looking in the cookie info, the cookie is present on the workstation. Has anyone any suggestions as to why this goes wrong?
