can't find anything to dupe this to in the download manager component, and yeah
it takes ages to even get to right click the second download (as it's waiting
for the first one to start).  i've been noticing this for a while on fx aviary
nightlies and trunk nightlies (well, hourlies now).  i don't want to confirm
until i'm sure it's not a dupe

This seems to be due to the pref
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server being set to 2. Changing it
to 3 alleviates the problem and adding another concurrent download causes it to
reoccur.

This was not the case for me. Could it be due to bug 240525?

this is quite the issue actually. There are times I will have 2-3 tabs open and something downloading will lock my PC until the page loads then 'poof' everything is normal again. This is with 1G of RAM and AMD3000
