As frg pointed out, bug 1340655 has removed the pipelining feature for HTTP/1.1 which has been experimental for ages anyway and superseded by other methods.

Consequently, network.http.pipelining.* and network.http.proxy.pipelining do no longer have any function, yet we are exposing the top-level enabling prefs in the Advanced > HTTP Networking prefpane.

Charge of this bug is to remove those from pref-http.{xul,js,dtd} along with respective Help content in cs_nav_prefs_advanced.xhtml.
Attached patch Proposed patchSplinter Review
This removes the two checkboxes and related logic.

I have retained the thin separator between the protocol and UA-string options.

Asking IanN for review as it involves Help-content changes, updating HTTP/1.1 to be the "current" protocol rather than the "new" one. Also, let me know if you want any further changes while I'm there.

Proposed patch

Stealing review. Tested and works as expected. Help content is and looks fine in my eyes.

Target milestone 2.53. 

I think it can ride the trains. If not please ask for beta approval.
Thanks for pushing. Yes, given that 2.52 won't be released as a final, no need for beta.
