There is an experimental XPI addon called Tweak Network that will take care of the http.pipelining all will be saved in the prefs.js file in your unique profile, its a good idea to make a backup of this before you start, you will find this in a hidden folder in your application data under your documents.

There are the other settings using this add-on's you can also easily go back from Power Settings to Default Settings really easily this way.

to form a jumbled words

Using VB as an example

Dim intLength as Integer
Dim y as Integer
Dim arrOut( ) as String
Dim TempLetter as String
ReDim arrOut(intLength)
dim boolDone as boolean ' flag to track unfilled positions

Write a loop that gets each letter from text1, then choose a random number from 1 to intLength

Get the existing letter, then put it into a different position in the arrOut, based on the random number. If something is in that position, try again:

for y=1 to intLength
tempLetter = mid(text1.text,y,1)
do while boolDone=false
r =CInt(Int((y * Rnd()) + 1)) 'Get random # from 1 to length
if arrOut(r) ="" then 'see if spot has been used
arrOut(r) = tempLetter
boolDone = true
end if
next 'get next letter in text1

text2.text=join(arrOut,"") ' concatenate arrOut, no delimiter.

Hope that helps.
