Firefox keeps loading pages - Solution

Posted by Sher Singh | | Category: , | 0 comments

Firefox is one of the best internet browser.Study shows that the number of people using Firefox as primary browser is increasing rapidly.Maximum number of tech geeks uses Mozilla Firefox instead of Internet Explorer.
Firefox browser looks better than IE .It loads faster than IE and have many plugins (add-ons) that enhance its functionality (Though IE also added some extra functionality in its 9 and later version) .
I am also using Firefox for surfing internet.From last few days I was getting some problem while using it.
My Firefox keeps on loading the page.Even welcome page was taking a long time to load.A circle in the tabs keeps on moving which shows that page is still loading.
Sometimes circle keeps on moving and i have to open a new blank tab.I was completely annoyed with this.I searched Mozilla forums and found this solution:-
1) Type about:config in the address bar and press the "Enter" key.
2) When you see a warning, click I'll be careful, I promise! button.
3) In the Filter bar, type network.http.max-connections
4) Right click the preference network.http.max-connections and choose Modify change the value to 30 or 48 click OK. (default value is 256)
5) Close the about:config tab and  Restart Firefox.

Another alternate solution for this problem is to disable the extra addons and plugins that you have installed.
Follow these steps to remove/disable addons or plugins:-
1) Go to Add-ons Manager by clicking Add-ons from Tools menu.Alternatively you can use command  ctrl+shift+A
2) Click on Disable button to disable the add-ons.You can uninstall these add-ons by clicking on Remove button.
3)You can also remove/disable extra plugins by selecting plugins from right sidebar.

After removing the extra add-ons/plugins , restart the Firefox.
Hope this solution will help you.If you have face same problem or still facing problem than please share it in comments

Airtel has launched the first 4G service of India.For now 4G service is launched in Kolkata only but soon Airtel will launch it in Bangalore.Other states have to wait for sometime to enjoy the this fastest internet service.
Airtel 4G services are priced from Rs 999 per month to Rs.1999 per month for a download datat of 6 to 9gb.
Airtel Bharti and its rivals had paid a total of 385.43 billion rupees to buy 4G spectrum in 2010.These companies have paid a large amount to buy spectrum so there is no hope of cheaper price plans in 4G service.Prices may be slashed to a little extent after launch of 4G service by other companies.

Just like 3G, 4G is short form of fourth generation.In simple words the 4G service will provide more fast internet speed than its predecessor 3G internet service.Downloading speed will be nearly 5 times faster than the 3G internet.Existing 3G services allow users to download data at max 21 mbps (megabyte per second) while 4G gives a download speed of up to 100 mbps.

4G will allow users faster download as well as fast uploading of files.

Points to keep in mind before Jailbreak

Posted by Sher Singh | | Category: , , | 0 comments

Jailbreak is one of the popular method to hack the iphone, ipod, ipad or apple tv.In technical terms it allows user to gain access over Unix file system of your i-Device and helps you to add additional applications through Cydia.With the help of Jailbreak user gain root access to the operating system and can add extra themes,apps and software which are not available through official apple store.

Disadvantages of Jailbreak
Now you know the advantages of Jailbreak.Now question is - Is there any back side of jailbreak.Answer is YES.First and major disadvantage of Jailbreak is that your warranty is void.Apple easily detects a jailbreak and never allow its users to jailbreak their device.
Another disadvantage is if you stuck in the process of Jailbreak than it might take many of your valuable hours to solve the problem.I am saying this with my personal experience :-(
Important points before Jailbreak
1)First check whether you can Jailbreak your device or not.If you are trying to unlock your iphone using Jailbreak than you must check it before proceeding.This guide will help you to know whether your device can be Jailbreak/unlock or not.Click here to Read the Jailbreak/Unlock Guide

You can earn $200 per day just by referring people for free registration.YES! its absolutely free for all time.You don't need to spend a single penny.It is not a joke.If you are a regular internet user than you might know the earnings of Facebook and Google.These two tech giants earn money through the users register on these site and by when users surf these sites online.
Companies like Google or Facebook earn BILLIONS OF $$$ every quarter,just because we, the Internet users use their services.It is time to understand, that we “the users” decide who is earning the big money.If we together decide to use the services of a company that shares profits with us,there is nothing that the other companies could do about it.It’s so easy: the more users that join the WAZZUB Family for free,the more money we “the users” will earn! Not only these two but many others like Yahoo, Bing are making a lot of money just because of us.These tech giants don't share their profit with the users surfing on these sites.But now there is a site wazzub.info which offers its users to share profit.All you need to do is to signup for a free account and refer your friends through your referral link to join the site.Sign up is free and is guaranteed to be free for always.
Here is a link to open a new account to wazzub.info
So its our time to join the site and refer as much as people we can. More the people we refer more is our earning. Facebook never shares its profit with its users than why not we join a network which is sharing its profit as well.Join it now before your friend refers this site to you.
Please note that this site is still not launched but you can join and refer friends.Here are wordings from site:-
 "WAZZUB is in pre-launch until April 9, 2012. The more users that join our network through your personal link the more your $FACTOR will grow. Each new member 5 generations deep let your $FACTOR grow by 1. After launch we will pay 50% of WAZZUB's profits to our pre-launch members every month.
We simply divide the earnings through the total amount of $FACTORs of all members. Let us say for June the rate per $FACTOR is US$1.00 and your personal $FACTOR is 3905. That means we will pay you 3905 x 1.00 = US$3905.00!

Happy earning. Below is a Calulator which shows how much you can earn in a month
