Unhappy Downloads in Firefox

I never had this problem is windows... Now I have installed moonshine with firefox and even applied the new update. So now I have Firefox-

The trouble is that it is not able to download more than 2 files at a time. And there is no options in Preferences to alter this behaviour.

When I try to download a third file while the two downloads are in progress, the run/save dialog box appears only after the completion of one of the downloads.

How do I fix it?

Thank you.

Are you doing the downloads from the same site? If so my guess they limit the number of connections from a single IP. I am currently running and able to do more than two downloads at a time. Might check the bug forum or tech support for firefox.

I just checked the version of Firefox I am running and it is the same as yours. I don't see such a limit unless it is imposed by the site itself. You might look at what plugins you have installed.
