Hello 100k, this options does not exist, why do not try to make a little faster the image loading ?

go to about:config find the network.http.pipelining and double-click on it to make it true.

then, always in about:config, find network.http.pipelining.maxrequests and right-click on it, select modify and put 8 as a value and click OK.

thank you
