2. Alter the entries as follows: 


network.dns.disableIPv6 -> true

network.http.pipelining -> true

network.http.proxy.pipelining -> true

network.http.pipelining.maxrequests -> 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. network.http.pipelining 


 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.
