Once in the settings page, In the “search” field write: network.http

Go to the list below and double click network.http.pipelining in order for it to change from “false” to “true”, or press Right-Click and press Toggle

do the same for network.http.proxy.pipelining

Now, in the “search” field write: network.dns
