How do I test the timeout setting in Firefox?

I want to eliminate the default client timeout in Firefox that will drop a connection after a minute if the web site hasn't resonded. I went into about:config and changed the network.http.response.timeout to 600. After restaritng my browser I'm still seeing timeouts after a minute. Perhaps the problem is on the server side but in order to eliminate that it is in fact the client, does anyone know a web site I can visit to test that my Firefox setting is sound? I want to eliminate the browser as the cause of the timeouts.

Thanks, - Dave
