    Here's something for broadband people that will really speed Firefox up:

    1.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:

    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 MUCH faster now!

    hope this will help

    Sadly it didn't work for me too. I tried it and i didn't find any change in my speed.
    Here are my speed result before doing this,
    UPLOAD: 0.642 Mbps.
    DOWNLOAD: 0.202 Mbps.
    Here are my speed result after doing this,
    UPLOAD: 0.18 Mbps.
    DOWNLOAD: 0.254 Mbps
    I had my speed test results from www.ip-details.com for free.

    This wont speed up your computer or your internet connection. It will speed up how Firefox handles websites or loads websites.
