How do I adjust the timeout for connection to a URL?

The timeout BEFORE Firefox reports 'not found'

I found only a Tutorial for Windows XP: http://drewthaler.blogspot.ro/2005/09/changing-dns-query-timeout-in-windows.html

  1. In the Location bar, type about:config and press Enter. The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear.
  2. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.
  3. Modify "network.http.keep-alive.timeout" parameter (the default value is 115)
  4. Restart Firefox.
