As far as I can tell, Firefox is the only browser that regards "connection: close" as an indication that the connection should not be counted against the connection limit

What gives you that idea? I'm not actually sure since I don't know the inner workings of the network code, but I have never heard of such behavior.

I have never heard of such behavior either until this thread. I just tried it out against Safari 3, IE8, Opera 9, and FF2. Only FF2 seemed to be affected by "Connection: close". FF2 seems to let me open an indefinite number of connections to a server if use "Connection: close", but only two connections are allowed if don't use it. I was surprised as well. FF3 is not affected by "Connection: close", only FF2.
