Affecting HTTP connections now have a response timeout

Published: | Categories: Networking

Description

Firefox has enabled a timeout to drop HTTP connections, except XMLHttpRequest and SPDY sessions, if the response takes too long. The initial value is 300 seconds or 5 minutes. If your application is processing large data and affected by this change, you can change the value of the network.http.response.timeout preference to a larger number via about:config.
