How can I download multiple files simultaneously? e.g. 6 files
When I attempt to download multiple files (say 5 in number), the Mozilla allows only two files too be downloaded simultaneously. I wanted to change the option of downloading six files together but did not find the feature that could do so. Can you please kindly help or there is no such feature in Mozilla?

There is a hidden preference for this. Check out this article: Network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server - MozillaZine Knowledge Base
If you haven't changed Firefox settings through about:config before, I recommend backing up your Firefox settings in case something goes wrong. See Backing up your information. (You can copy your entire Firefox profile folder somewhere outside of the Mozilla folder.)
This is far too difficult way to resolve the issue. Will hate to play with Mozilla as I am not very good in computer software matters.
You could check whether there is an add-on that makes it easier. Over the years, people have created so many add-ons related to downloading that I can't quickly find one that tweaks this setting. But you might be more motivated to dig through them than I am...
Thanks a lot. Will try this once I get back home.
