    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!

    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.

    06. CONTENT INTERRUPT PARSING
    This preference controls if the application will interrupt parsing a page to respond to UI events. It does not exist by default.
    Right-click (Apple users ctrl+click) anywhere in the about:config window, select New and then Boolean from the pop-up menu. Then:

    A. Enter content.interrupt.parsing in the New boolean value pop-up window and click OK.

    B. When prompted to choose the value for the new boolean, select true and click OK.

    07. Rather than wait until a page has completely downloaded to display it to the user, Mozilla applications will regularly render
    what has been received to that point. This option controls the maximum
    amount of time the application will be unresponsive while rendering pages.

    Right-click (Apple users ctrl+click) anywhere in the about:config window, select New and then Integer from the pop-up menu.

    A. Enter content.max.tokenizing.time in the New integer value pop-up window and click OK.


    B. You will be prompted to enter a value. Enter 2250000 and click OK.

    08. CONTENT NOTIFY INTERVAL
    This option sets the minimum amount of time to wait between reflows.
    Right-click (Apple users ctrl+click) anywhere in the about:config window, select New and then Integer from the pop-up menu.

    A. Type content.notify.interval in the New integer value pop-up window and click OK.

    B. You will be prompted to enter a value. Enter 750000 and click OK.

    09. CONTENT NOTIFY ONTIMER

    A. This option sets if to reflow pages at an interval any higher than that
    specified by content.notify.interval. Right-click (Apple users
    ctrl+click) anywhere in the about:config window and select New and then Boolean from the pop-up menu.

    B. Type content.notify.ontimer in the New boolean value pop-up window and click OK.

    C. You will be prompted to choose the value for the new boolean. Select true and click OK.

    10. Notify Backoffcount
    This option controls the maximum number of times the content will do
    timer-based reflows. After this number has been reached, the page will
    only reflow once it is finished downloading. Right-click (Apple users ctrl+click) anywhere in the about:config window and select New and then Integer from the pop-up menu.

    A. Enter content.notify.backoffcount in the New integer value pop-up window and click OK.

    B. You will be prompted to enter a value. Enter 5 and click OK.

    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.

    A. Enter content.switch.threshold in the New integer value pop-up window and click OK.

    B. You will be prompted to enter a value. Enter 750000 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.

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

    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.
