How to increase the number of downloads in Firefox
September 25, 2007 Leave a comment
Any standard web browser supports only 2 downloads at one time per one server. Firefox also does the same. As a result, you will not be able to download more than 2 files at once in Firefox’s download manager.
A minor tweak to Firefox’s configuration allows you to configure this number as per your requirement.
Type “about:config” (with out quotes) in Firefox’s address bar.
Firefox will display a big list of configurable values in a grid. In the Filter box of this grid, type network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server.
By default this will have a value of “2”. Change this number to your custom number as shown below.
