Setting timeout delay in about:config doesn't work

I have an embedded device connected to my computer with ethernet connection.

I use the device through the web interface. The web interface can change the connection settings (IP adresses, etc.). When I apply the new settings, the ethernet interface of the device is reset (ifconfig down && ifconfig up). Firefox still load the page (after clicking the "apply button"), and then timeout after 10-16 seconds, regardless of the timeout delay in about:config (network.http.connection-timeout, network.http.keep-alive.timeout, network.http.response.timeout, etc.).

Chromium is not behaving like this, the timeout doesn't occur.

Thanks in advance, Simon
