How to Increase the Number of Simultaneous Downloads Firefox

One of the web standards that almost every modern web browser adheres to is the maximum number of simultaneous downloads from a web server. That limit of course is two and Firefox is no exception!
Here's how to increase that limit:

- Open Firefox and type about:config in the address bar and press Enter
- Look for network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server by copying and pasting in the filter field.
- Once located double-click network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server and change to a value of your choice. [See pic below]

This is a useful tip, but at the same time it's kind of inconsiderate to download more than two things from a web site. If you do it too much and/or they don't have a great server, you can slow things down for everyone.
