Can I increase the number of downloads greater than 6?
I am downloading a bunch of short films roughly 25 to 40 minutes each. I am using Time Warner Cable with a download speed of 30 mpbs.
I noticed that I can only download 6 films at one time using Firefox. When one of them is finished, then I can download another clip.
Is there a way that I can increase the number of downloads to a new maximum amount?

There's a "hidden" setting for that.
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server - default = 6
Hello, note that too many connections to a server, may lead to you being banned from the server. As the kb said Anything above 10 is excessive.
btw, i have it 22, and i'm ok ! (.....i think !) :-)
By increasing this pref and download many files simultaneously you block other visitors from accessing that server and that is considered bad practice.
