You can use the DownThemAll addon ( https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/downthemall/ ) to manage your downloads. I started using it because Firefox would sometimes stop downloads in the middle without notifying me and I got corrupt/incomplete files as a result. DownThemAll fixed that and you can also set the number of concurrent downloads as you wish and reorder them.

A download manager can give you better control.

This download manager works separately from the browser. The browser tells it what to download, and off it goes.
