Found this on another forum,works great.


Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return.
Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining

network.http.proxy.pipelining

network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

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.

2. Alter the entries as follows: (double click on 'false'

Set "network.http.pipelining" to ''true''
Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true"

set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30.
This means it will make 30 requests at once.

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 recieves.

If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages 2-3 times faster now.

Another top tip:

Do not install the Googlebar for Firefox. In my experience it slows Firefox right down and becomes unusable for a several seconds every few minutes. I had reinstalled it today after several months without it, and it wasn't too long before I realised why I had uninstalled it. Stay clear!
