How to speed up Firefox (in 30 seconds)

If you thought Firefox was fast before, try it after this tweak:

1 - Open Firefox (really, required)
2 - Open URL: about:config
3 - Find (CTRL + F): network.http.pipelining. Double click on it so it changes to true
4 - Find: network.http.pipelining.maxrequests. Double click on it and change it from 4 to 100 or so

That's it. This makes FF use more threads to each page. You'll realize the difference on sites that use Google Maps like Wikiloc :-)
