    While fiddling with the network settings, I come accross this page:
    http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?1,104959

    And there are two links to test the browser settings in the real life - first this little page tells about the number of connections per server the browser use: http://spasche.net/files/parallel_connections/

    And second and more importantly, THIS page refuse to load all images: http://stevesouders.com/hpws/max-connections.php
    No matter how I try to play with the settings.

    In about:config I enter "network" and tweak these (Firefox 3.0.14):
    Code:
    network.http.max-connections;64
    network.http.max-connections-per-server;12
    network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy;8
    network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server;6
    network.http.pipelining;false
    network.http.pipelining.maxrequests;8
    network.http.request.max-start-delay;0
    http://stevesouders.com/hpws/max-connections.php
    103 images shown (hell, that was hard counting)
    77 images now shown (180 total then are on page...)

    http://spasche.net/files/parallel_connections/
    Your browser seems to use 6 simultaneous connections to this server.

    So it looks like the number or persistent connections are important, so I bumped it a little for my 20MBi cable to 12:
    Code:
    network.http.max-connections;64
    network.http.max-connections-per-server;12
    network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy;12
    network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server;12
    network.http.pipelining;true
    network.http.pipelining.maxrequests;8
    network.http.request.max-start-delay;0
    ...and hence it fluctuate ( http://spasche.net/files/parallel_connections/ ) between 11 and 12. So far so good, but nothing convinced this page: http://stevesouders.com/hpws/max-connections.php to load all the damn images and not to mention in adequate time.

    Page load time: 8951 ms - this is a joke and futhermore, most of the images are NOT SHOWN! :thumbd:

    :doubt: :( :mad:

    Pls help and suggestions welcome. I already had optimized the TCP connection using the TCPOptimizer 2.0.3 ( http://www.sendspace.com/file/zlxhgz ) suggestions to suit my connection best...

    I can't help you much, but did you ever consider the fact that you're using a browser almost 4 years old and the website in question was likely created around that time as well and tested with equally old browsers? The page itself could be long broken and may not work right period. On Chrome 22, the absolute newest stable release, I couldn't get them all to load either and my first try page load time wasn't that much more spectacular than yours. I guess my question to you is why are you messing about with network settings to begin with? What problem is there and what are you trying to accomplish? Last I'd ask why you are that far behind in Firefox versions? Two or three versions behind I could understand a bit, but you don't even have 3.6?
