Your cable connection is probably slightly faster than my DSL - for me, it took 4.2 seconds in IE, versus 4.4 in Firefox. With pipelining disabled in FF, that is, and IE doesn't implement http pipelining anyway. Enabling pipelining in FF caused that same page to take 13.9 seconds to load here, a fairly significant slowdown.

You had to set something wrong. I'm on T1 speed DSL, and I've never had a page to load that slow. Recheck what you did just to be sure. Something is definitely wrong.
The changes I listed made mine, and many other FReeper's Firefox from noticeably to allot faster. Check over everything and report back, something is wrong somewhere.
