From time to time I’ve been frustrated by the inability of both IE and Firefox to download more than two files at a time. After a little research I was surprised to find out that this is intentional! Luckily, in Firefox this can be changed.
The process of changing this limitation is pretty simple. For those of you who don’t know, Firefox has a special “link” you can use to change settings which are not exposed within the User Interface. To go to this link simply type “about:config” in your location bar and press enter.
In the resulting list find the option named:
This is set to 2 by default. You can set this to be whatever you want. I set mine to four.
Now, you can download more than just two files at a time!
