Is there any way to have firefox queue up downloads instead of downloading everything all at once?

I don't think there is - there are, of course other products which will enable you to do this, but Firefox currently doesn't.

Greetings, HappyEngineer !

You can use Download Express to queque your downloads.

This third party download manager is light weight and integrates well with Firefox.

Best wishes!

Download managers is what u need if u require what u want
Just google it, find those you may find interesting

Why dont u look at the Firefox Addons? https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/256/  There is download manager tweak but dont know if that is what u want exactly

Another for Firefox, there is FlashGot  http://www.flashgot.net/whats


A decent free one is fresh devices http://www.freshdevices.com/
The other of course is getright http://www.getright.com/

rockiroads, I have searched Firefox addons and didn't find anything. The rest are probably fine though, including war1's suggestion. In other words, do not search on Firefox Addons :)

Firefox is not as well conceived as you might think -- it is nowhere near as stable as the Mozilla browser, at its download manager is not as reliable as mozilla download manager, but the two dont let you schedule downloads, but there are oodles of download mangers that let you do this --

Here is just a sample of the many programs you can get, most are freeware -

Firefox works just fine.

All you need to do is goto the Firefox extensions (not addons) and Install Flashgot and Free Download Manager

https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/220/

http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/download.htm

They work great together and allows you to Queue up what you want

The particular site that I wanted to use this for has a CAPTCHA access key and for whatever reason it doesn't help to have the cookies in the browser when using any of the download managers that I tried. It appears that the download url actually has a key that's generated by javascript. I can only assume that this is done to require that the download occurs from inside a browser. No download manager appears to actually attempt to render javascript in pages, so it just doesn't work.

Thanks, but I decided to just give up on it. The only solution that would be likely to work would be to actually have the download manager work from inside of mozilla (or some other browser). It simply doesn't work to use any external download manager in this case.
