Feel free to post your results or experiences while surfing, so we see if the tweaks are speeding us up or slowing down. I will test them on slow connection in the next few days.
and now repeat them with PaleMoon and you will be suprised...

PaleMoon is very well optimized/tweaked even on default. Using all or some of these tweaks help in most cases.

In my experience Waterfox was fastest from all Firefox variants (x64) but unfortunately its no longer updated.

New Cyberfox 23 might also be worth a try...
