    i got this from another fourm. i dont know if its been posted here or not but i thought it wouldnt hurt.

    Do the following.

    -Open Firefox and on the address bar write
    "about:config" and hit enter

    -find the string
    network.http.pipelining
    -double click and change the value to true

    -find the string
    network.http.pipelining.maxrequests
    -double click and change the value to anything from 40-100 (depending on your speed and computer)

    -find the string
    browser.turbo.enabled
    -double click and change the value to true

    AND: 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.

    -Now close and restart and enjoy the new
    blazing speed of Firefox...
