Speeding up Iceweasel

This is being done on Iceweasel 3.5.16,
which is what comes with Debian 6 (Squeeze)
Open Iceweasel and type about:config in the address bar and press Enter.
Promise that you’ll be careful.
Change the following preferences to the new values shown.
Change a setting by double clicking it.

browser.display.show_image_placeholders: false
network.prefetch-next: false
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server: 8
network.http.pipelining: true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests: 8
network.dns.disableIPv6: true

That should do it.
