Increasing web browser timeout?

4 posts in this topic

I'm on a WiFi connection that constantly varies wildly in quality. Sometimes it's super fast, sometimes I have to re-load several times before a page will load.

How can I at least double the time Firefox, IE7 and Google Chrome wait before giving up on a page download? Tripling it might be better!

It'd also be nice if there's a way to make them pop up a warning when downloads get dropped before they're finished. It's extremely annoying to download a 100+ meg driver installer, burn it to disc then find out somewhere with only dialup that the stupid browser just gave up on it a few megs shy of done without any warning that it didn't finish its task.

I'm not sure about IE or Chrome, but Firefox has a built in config file you can edit. just type about:config in the address bar to get the settings.
