No, you can't add this missing pref back.
Support to disable keep-alive has been removed and keep-alive is always enabled.

See "A Preference to disable HTTP Keep-Alive has been removed":

Question owner

since this preference has been removed is there anyway to make fire fox faster >? although this basically states that it is always enabled is there anyway to make firefox faster without touching the keep alive function.

Question owner

Thank you ... for answering and being helpful

@ Beyondsight: I assume you're referring to the wikihow pipelining tutorial. Since keep-alive's now on by default, there's no need to turn it on. Just skip that first step and do the rest, and you should get the specified results; I did.
