    Type about:config in the address bar, Then look for the following entries, and make the corresponding changes.

    1.network.http.max-connections-per-server =32

    2.network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy =16

    3.network.http.max-connections = 64

    4.network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server = 10

    5.network.http.pipelining = true

    6.network.http.pipelining.maxrequests = 200

    7.network.http.request.max-start-delay = 0

    8.network.http.proxy.pipelining = true

    9.network.http.proxy.version = 1.0
    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 recieves.Enjoy!
