Info: HTTP is the application-layer protocol that most web pages are
transferred with. In HTTP 1.1, multiple requests can be sent before any
responses are received. This is known as pipelining. Pipelining reduces
page loading times, but not all servers support it!

03. Go back to the Filter search bar and type
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests Double-click this option and set its
value to 8.

Info: In IPv6-capable DNS servers, an IPv4 address may be returned when
an IPv6 address is requested. It is possible for Mozilla to recover from
this misinformation, but a significant delay is introduced.

11. CONTENT SWITCH THRESHOLD
You can interact with a loading page when content.interrupt.parsing is
set to true. When a page is loading, the application has two modes: a
high frequency interrupt mode and a low frequency interrupt mode. The
first one interrupts the parser more frequently to allow for greater UI
responsiveness during page load.

The low frequency interrupt mode interrupts the parser less frequently to
allow for quicker page load. The application enters high frequency
interrupt mode when you move the mouse or type on the keyboard and switch
back to low frequency mode when you had no activity for a certain amount
of time. This preference controls that amount of time. Right-click (Apple
users ctrl+click) anywhere in the about:config window and select New and
then Integer from the pop-up menu.

and click OK.

12. NGLAYOUT INITIALPAINT DELAY
Mozilla applications render web pages incrementally, they display
what??™s been received of a page before the entire page has been
downloaded. Since the start of a web page normally doesn't have much
useful information to display, Mozilla applications will wait a short
interval before first rendering a page. This preference controls that
interval. Right-click (Apple users ctrl+click) anywhere in the
about:config window and select New and then Integer from the pop-up menu.
steps in speeding firefox

A. Enter nglayout.initialpaint.delay in the New integer value pop-up
window and click OK.
steps in speeding up firefox

B. You will be prompted to enter a value. Enter 0 and click OK.

That's it! Now restart Firefox and your browsing as well as downloading
speed will be much more faster. Good luck.
