I remember reading somewhere in here how to get firefox to open multiple connections. Can someone point me to this thread, or tell me how it's done?

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading. - Alter the entries as follows:
Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true"
Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true"
Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

this is not a good idea.
These settings violate the HTTP protocol, and give you a speed boost by flooding the web server with 20-something connections for every single image and page request. There's a reason that they're not the default.
These settings will not only cause many web servers to have problems, but they can also make your web browser be mistaken for a flood attack, which will make the server add your IP to an "ignore" list. Stay away from these "optimized" settings, unless you know exactly what they do and how they work.

Also, right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0”. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it displays the information it receives.
Are you using a vanilla version of Firefox, or are you using one of the optimized builds for the G5? (http://www.beatnikpad.com/archives/2004/11/06/firefoxG5)

Okay...I made the settings changes, and everything appears to be working great!
