How to limit max number of downloads at once (and create a download queue)

more options

I just "upgraded" to Mozilla 26.0 last night and was quite irritated that they changed the made it so that I cannot access the old download window. Was it really necessary to get rid of the work-around to get to the old download window? Anyway, besides being more visually appealing, it previously downloaded two files at a time, unless I manually forced it to do more. The rest of the files would go into a download queue to wait their turn. After the update, it no longer creates a queue, leading to much slower downloads and it also slows my computer if I download too much. Is there any way that I can limit the max number of downloads (unless I want to force it to download more) like I had on the previous version of firefox? I would prefer not to add more any add-ons, so if there is an check-box that I missed somewhere or something in about:config that would allow me to do this it would be better. Also, is there any way to pause downloads now?
