My computer has lately been disconnecting in firefox and firefox only
its really wierd, even while running ping -t google.com in the background
firefox will suddenly stop connecting to the internet
it says that the internet works, but when i try to visit any webpage or use any internet feature on firefox, it will not work
i can play games fine and ping -t google.com still shows connectivity
why does this happen?
i have tried diagnosing the problem, but came up with nothing.
i think it has to do with my stumbleupon toolbar

well, yes
but i only really use firefox for stumbling and gmail
and not all the time, but most of the time when im stumbling, it disconnects
im pretty sure that something weird is happening with stumbleupon, but sometimes stumbleupon works fine with no disconnect, so im kinda confused

Solved.
I found the reason for the gradual slowdown and eventual disconnect. In the current version of DownThemAll 1.0 for Firefox 2.*, if the number of chunks per download is set to 10, then it automatically changes the about:config with these: network.http.max-connections to 204, network.http.max-connections-per-server to 102, etc. Disabling DownThemAll and resetting the values will fix the problem. This is currently not solved and here is a support ticket link: http://bugs.code.downthemall.net/trac/ticket/627
