Firefox Download limit

Firefox Download limit

I know you can queue up all the downloads in firefox and if you keep adding them, they just keep downloading. I know I can pause a download and let one finish and then start the other one. But is there a way, maybe an entry in about:config that can help me limit how many downloads to allow going on. I know I can use a download manager but I'm just curious about this. I am not asking for a bandwidth limit tip but instead a download number limit tip. Thanks.

"I'd use a download manager - something like download them all - this will give you the control you're after, and a bunch more.

Limiting your max-connections will do the job, but if I understand correctly will also limit how many files you can download when browsing and slow down web-pages (probably not the effect you're after)."
