Hopefully someone who uses Firefox on a personal desktop computer that is not connected to a network can answer this question:
In Internet Explorer, I know that unchecking 'the Automatically Detect Settings' option in the LAN settings under the Connections tab allows webpages to load faster.
In Firefox, there are four Internet Setting Configurations: 'No Proxy,' 'Auto Detect Proxy Settings For This Network,' 'Use System Proxy Settings,' and 'Manual Proxy Configuration,' 'Auto-Detect' being the default option.
1. Which of these four settings allows webpages to load as quickly as they would in IE by unchecking 'the Automatically Detect Settings' option and what is the order of the other three configurations from 'fastest' to slowest?'
2. Under 'Cached Web Content,' should the 'Override Automatic Cache Management' option be checked? If so, how many MB should the cache be limited to? Right now, the option is unchecked and set to 350MB.
Some webpages are loading slowly so perhaps the above settings need to be changed.
Also, is there an 'Email Notification' option at the top/bottom of each thread created so that I know when someone has responded?
