And second and more importantly, THIS page refuse to load all images: Max Connections
No matter how I try to play with the settings.

In about:config I enter "network" and tweak these (Firefox 3.0.14):
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

Max Connections
103 images shown (hell, that was hard counting)
77 images now shown (180 total then are on page...)

Test 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:
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 ( Test Parallel connections ) between 11 and 12. So far so good, but nothing convinced this page: Max Connections 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!





Pls help and suggestions welcome. I already had optimized the TCP connection using the TCPOptimizer 2.0.3 ( Download TCPOptimizer.zip from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way ) suggestions to suit my connection best...
I am not sure if you can use use tcp optimizer to change settings in new OSs
another thing also is when you are doing those tests and making adjustments make sure that any extensions and or plugins are off becasue they affect the way your web browser runs
