4. Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.
5. right-click anywhere in the config page 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.
6. restart firefox

See if that helps.
what will happen if I increase the number of request at once?
