Connections not going through a proxy are not affected. The only knob I can find to twiddle is network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy and changing that makes no difference. Under 0.8 this problem didn't occur and it doesn't occur under Mozilla 1.7. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install FireFox 0.9 2. Configure a proxy 3. Launch 4 downloads, through a proxy. 4. Try to launch a 5th, or connect to any web site through the proxy. Actual Results: Step (4) blocked until one of the downloads ended. Expected Results: There should be the ability to increase this limit, particularly as it doesn't occur under 0.8 or Mozilla 1.7.
Ok, strangely, this problem has stopped happening (though I've not tried 0.9.1 yet). I didn't change anything in the config (yeah, I know - everybody says that), but it started allowing more than 4 connections. I'll just chalk it up to the gremlins :)
