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.

By increasing this pref and download many files simultaneously you block other visitors from accessing that server and that is considered bad practice.
