 Step_1: Open Firefox and type about:config in the address bar where you normally type a web address.

Step_2: Then click the button: "I'll be careful, I promise".

Step_3: In the filter bar below the address bar type network.http.

Step_4: Double-click on "network.http.pipelining" to change the setting from false to true.

Step_5: Double-click on "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to change the value from false to true.

Step_6: Double-click on "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" and change the number to "30". This means it will make 30 requests at once.
(Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.)

Step_7: Several lines above network.http.proxy.pipelining you’ll see
"network.http.max-persistant-connections-per-proxy" and
Double-click each line and change the value to "8".

Step_8: Two lines up locate and double-click on "network.http.max-connections" and set the value to "48".

Step_9: Now right-click (control-click on a Mac) anywhere in the configuration (the area where you’ve been making the changes). Select "New" then "Integer".

Step_10: When prompted, copy and paste or type the following into the field provided: nglayout.initialpaint.delay.

Step_11: When prompted to add a value, enter the number "0". This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.

Step_12: Close all windows and tabs. The changes will take effect when you restart Firefox.

These changes allow Firefox to make multiple server connections and will speed up page downloads for better, more efficient use of your broadband connection. If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!
